Enhancing Neighbourhood Safety: Investigating the role of urban form in crime prevention and residents’ perception of safety

This research investigates various features in urban form and examines their impact on crime rates. The primary objective is to provide evidence about how factors such as street layout, land usage, building typology and density can deter or encourage antisocial behaviour in a neighbourhood. The study analyses two contrasting case studies in London: Kings Cross redevelopment and Aylesbury Estate in Walworth.
