Details

This guide 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.
