CRIME PREVENTION THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN (CPTED)
Crime prevention through environmental design, mandated under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act 1979, is a process designed to mitigate risk to the users of a space.
A natural progression from the review of safety in design and accessibility; CPTED review, particularly of open spaces, has been at the core of our review process since 2000.
Review is undertaken to international aligned principles, with heavy weighted consideration to the Local Guide (i.e. Crime prevention and the assessment of development applications - Guidelines under section 79C of the environmental planning and assessment act 1979 (NSW)) and Australian Government documentation, notably the Australia - New Zealand Counter-terrorism Committee Australia’s strategy for Protecting Crowded Place from Terrorism.
