Hertfordshire’s Police Crime Prevention Design Advisors advise local planning departments and architects on all aspects of the security of the development. They should be contacted in the early stages of planning and design. The developments likely to be considered include the following: 

  • Significant housing developments
  • Major commercial office, industrial, retail or leisure schemes
  • Development involving new neighbourhood or district community facilities
  • Proposals that include significant areas of open space/landscaping proposed as part of the development
  • Developments incorporating significant offstreet car parking provision
  • Proposals involving transport interchanges or other significant highway infrastructure improvements such as cycle lanes or new improved footpaths
  • Applications for Class A3 Food and Drink Uses
  • Development likely to have an impact on future policing resources
