Sustainable communities are communities which succeed now economically, socially and environmentally, and respect the needs of future generations.

Sustainable communities are communities which succeed now economically, socially and environmentally, and respect the needs of future generations.  They are also well-designed places where people feel safe and secure; where crime and disorder, or the fear of crime, doesn’t undermine quality of life or community cohesion. This is why the new Planning Policy Statement (PPS) 1, the overarching PPS setting out the Government’s planning objectives, will highlight the need to plan for sustainable communities.

Designing out crime and designing in community safety should be central to the planning and delivery of new development. Section 17 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 requires all local authorities to exercise their functions with due regard to their likely effect on crime and disorder, and to do all they reasonably can to prevent crime and disorder. This indispensable new guide, along with the PPS1, will assist you in meeting these requirements and developing sustainable communities.

This unique guide provides you with:

• A user-friendly companion to the proposed policy in PPS1.
• Practical help to enable you to deliver a significant contribution to tackling crime via informed, positive planning.
• Advice and information on the promotion of safe, sustainable and attractive enviroments that meet the full set of planning objectives.
• Detailed case studies
