Enhanced security needed for tenements

In the last few weeks, I have visited a number of backcourts which are poorly maintained and have problems with security. Some of the backcourts are accessible from the back lanes. This is mainly due to a lack of a securely locked gate.

The above doorways highlight the significant difference to security made by a gate. As a consequence of poor security, backcourts are used for flytipping and as places for people to sleep if they are homeless. The flats without the gates are more likely to experience break-ins or thefts.
