Councillors have recommended that more than £14,000 be spent on gating off an alleyway along Great Yarmouth's historic Town Wall that is blighted by anti-social behaviour.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council's economic development committee has agreed to progress plans for the passageway linking Regent Road to Market Gates, passing under the shopping centre above, to be gated off at nighttime.
The committee agreed to allocate £14,080 to install gates and also railings on top of a goods yard wall. The funds will come from the Town Centre Initiative reserve.
There is a major issue of people urinating in the passageway at night with the smell persisting into the morning and also mess left from people vomiting and human excrement, food waste, wet and soiled bedding and litter. Young people also jump off the town wall into the alleyway below as part of the Parkour craze.
