Safer Places: The Planning System and Crime Prevention
- Published: 5 April 2004
- Site: Planning, building and the environment
Safer Places will be of interest to anyone involved
in the planning and design of new development. Its main
audience is likely to be the officers and councillors in local
authorities who guide and control development. But the guide
will also be relevant to those who promote development and
advise on it, including the Police.
Safer Places focuses on seven attributes of
sustainability that are particularly relevant to crime
prevention. The attributes are general and descriptive. They
are not prescriptive. They are not a set of rules to be applied
to all situations. Instead, they should be considered as
prompts to thinking about crime prevention and promoting
community safety through the planning system.
