Abstract

PurposeTo analyse the nexus between Crime Prevention through Urban Design and Planning (CP-UDP) and e-participation in urban planning, with the notion that a comprehensive planning approach is necessary if we are to have safe effective cities. To challenge this objective in Italy. Design/methodology/approachThe study relies on several European case studies on CP-UDP undertaken as part of EU COST Action TU1203. It also builds on my own research on Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) and its potential development in Italy, which was based on interviews with key informants and a review of the literature.FindingsCPTED, as a proactive and potentially effective crime prevention strategy, plays an important role - along with citizen participation - in the development of safer cities. Information and Communications Technology (ICT) can provide a valuable tool to enhance participatory planning. The thesis supported in this paper is that widespread of e-participation in urban planning makes it possible to implement safer cities if a comprehensive planning approach is applied. Learning from Europe, Italy has started taking steps in this direction.Originality/valueThe smart city concept pervades contemporary urban studies, supported by European policies, according to the logic that the use of ICT may contribute to sustainable development in its various dimensions. A new-generation CP-UDP focused on e-participation may enhance the design of safer cities.
