Iain Murray has an interesting summary of a new report into the linkages between urban design and crime rates. Apparently all that stuff about needing to create 'common spaces' in order to encourage communities to 'reclaim' their neighbourhoods is misinformed, it does not lead to lower crime rates. Might be something in this for urban planners in South Africa, particularly with respect to low cost housing areas...
