NSW | Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design

Published 30th May 22 12:00 PM

Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) is a crime prevention strategy that focuses on the planning, design and structure of cities and neighbourhoods. It reduces opportunities for crime by using design and place management principles that reduce the likelihood of essential crime ingredients (law, offender, victim or target, opportunity) from intersecting in time and space. This evolving disciple aims to create the reality (or perception) that the costs of committing crime are greater than the likely benefits.

The principles underpinning CPTED are relevant to planning and design at all scales through the clear connections with the physical and organisational design of our cities. This includes a range of places where people gather in the urban environment, ranging from bus shelters, private homes and public buildings through to public spaces, subdivisions layouts and major infrastructure projects such as bridges, tunnels and motorways.

John Maynard is a crime prevention and community safety specialist focusing on the planning, design, management and maintenance of safe cities. He is an expert in the application of CPTED principles and the relationship between human behaviour and the way we plan and design public and private spaces. John’s expertise in this area means that this PEP talk will appeal to a broad range of members working in and around urban and non-urban infrastructure projects and private development, as well as those with a general interest in the sometimes invisible forces that help shape our cities and public spaces.

This PEP talk will be run as a hybrid event, i.e. it will also be running live on-line for those who are unable to make it in person (a link will be sent to you closer to the event). Please contact the Secretariat at once you have registered to request a link.
