What’s Up on Beaufort Street?

Exploring Crime, Traffic Risks and Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED)

We are thrilled to say that our CPTED report is finished and available for all to read! Commissioned by Inglewood on Beaufort and our local MLA, Lisa Baker with funding from the State Government’s Local Projects Local Jobs initiative the report assesses the built form “environment” of Beaufort Street and the adjacent laneways and how they impact upon individuals safety and what could be done to improve it. Prepared by Curtin Universities Dr Paul Cozens and Dr Courtney Babb, the report will be invaluable for Inglewood on Beaufort and everyone in our local area as it gives us evidence based insights that will support future grants or appeals in the future months and years to come.

On 3 December Chair, Damien Giudici and local MLA, Lisa Baker officially launched the CPTED report at the Inglewood Town Square, where the report was handed over to the City of Stirling and it is officially available for all to read right here: CPTED Beaufort Street Survey

Damien had this to say about the new report and launch:

We’ve seen the benefits of the CPTED report in Maylands in identifying community perceptions of their neighbourhood and it provides an evidence base upon which to respond.  As such we were convinced commissioning a similar report would benefit Inglewood.

While Inglewood’s crime statistics are pretty average in a metropolitan context, with a CPTED report in hand we’re more confident of where to invest our time and resources into the public realm.

The launch is just a way to announce the document has gone public. It’s now available on the website for the community to read and with the formal handing over of copies to the City of Stirling we hope to see them become collaborators in resolving some of the safety issues identified in the report.”

If you took part in the survey, or simply want to find out what the results are then please read it.
