Protecting crowded places from terrorism
These documents provide advice on increasing the protection of crowded places from a terrorist attack.
The UK faces a real threat from terrorism and crowded places remain an attractive target. The documents below provide guidance on increasing the protection of crowded places from a terrorist attack. There is general guidance as well as guides for specific sectors.
The guidance from the Royal Institute of British Architects on Counter-Terrorism and the Built Environment informs built environment professionals of government work to protect crowded places. It is particularly relevant for the design of large new developments, and places where large numbers of people gather.
