Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The importance of reducing the opportunity for crime and disorder through the design and planning of the built environment is documented in national and local policy; however, there is little guidance to state how it should be embedded in practice. This chapter outlines how CPTED is incorporated into the design and planning process across the ten local authorities in Greater Manchester (England). To the author’s knowledge, the model of delivery across Greater Manchester is atypical both nationally and internationally. Design for Security Consultancy (DFSC) is a design-led consultancy based within Greater Manchester Police (GMP), employs former built environment professionals and charges a fee for the production of a Crime Impact Statement (CIS). This chapter presents the key findings from two unstructured interviews conducted with the former and current Head of Crime Prevention at GMP. It outlines the rationale for employing former built environment professionals, introducing the CIS (and associated charging structure) and states how the delivery of CPTED has developed since 2006.
