This book sets out to investigate the relationship between crime and the design and planning of housing, and to produce practical recommendations to help architects and planners to reduce crime. It builds upon and updates research originally published in Crime Free Housing (1991), providing an easily accessible, high quality and well presented account of crime and housing layout.

The recommendations of this book focus on ways of reducing four different types of crime through better design:

  • burglary - a strategy to discourage people trying to break into houses
  • car crime - a strategy for providing a safe place to park cars
  • theft around the home - a strategy for protecting the front of house, items in gardens, sheds and garages safe
  • criminal damage - a strategy to minimize malicious damage to property.
