The planning and design of places, spaces and buildings can assist in reducing crime by the application of improvements to lighting, fencing, landscaping and surveillance of the area from buildings and land use. Peoples’ behaviour, particularly in terms of the possibility of offending, as well as an individual’s perception about their safety, can be influenced by the design of that environment. Good design can reduce opportunities for offending and improve feelings of safety.
