Section 1 – Gating orders

This section inserts a new Part in the Roads (Northern Ireland) Order 1993 to provide district councils with the power to make a gating order to restrict public access to a road over which the public would normally have a right of passage. A gating order may be made in respect of a road which is facilitating high and persistent levels of crime and/or anti-social behaviour that adversely affects local residents or businesses. District councils will be required to publicise their intention to make a gating order and to obtain the approval of the Department for Regional Development prior to making the order.
