Innovative urban design
The design of public spaces can have a huge impact on actual and perceived safety. Good design takes a holistic approach that promotes liveability and community participation, taking into consideration the ongoing engagement, activation and management that is necessary to ensure a safe, welcoming and inclusive community space. Further information on preventing crime through urban design can be found on the crime prevention website.
This resource contains some national and international examples of innovative design that aim to activate spaces and encourage prosocial use of public space. These are provided as a source of inspiration rather than an indication of the types of projects that will be funded through the Community Crime Prevention Program.
