The Cabe team at the Design Council is pleased to be presenting this new evidence to help designers and other stakeholders create safe, attractive neighbourhoods. We are clearly aware that crime and fear of crime is a critical issue in how residents view their neighbourhood and their resultant quality of life.

This guide, and the case studies included in it, were part of a Cabe crime and urban design research project that was funded by the Home Office and undertaken in 2009-2010.
