    Abstract

    This research paper explores the methods of crime prevention available to already existing council estates, in order to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour. Research was conducted into the effectiveness of these crime prevention methods within private estates, and how efficiently they could be implemented into the public housing sector. Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) has been researched extensively for many years, but this paper aims to define the limitations of already existing crime prevention methods, specifying the crime measures to council estates.

    Through this study, it was found that the crime prevention methods, already in place within existing council estates, are not adequately efficient in preventing crime. Looking at a comparison to the methods used within private estates, it is clearly outlined that there are various boundaries and limitations to improving CPTED within already existing council estates. Critical Analysis of Legislation and British Standards, showed that there could be a substantial improvement to the level of crimes committed if consideration was taken to the requirements of CPTED in relation to council estates.
