    Firstly, the links within the top section of this page on The 5is Book are not working. “Page not found”.

    Secondly, great blog. I am a Planning student exploring the implementation of CPTED in the UK and the barriers to successful schemes. Education, competing priorities, a lack of ownership/responsibility, and over-simplification all seem to be important factors. This page has been very helpful in showing this is recognised and there are ideas on how to overcome this, but the message doesn’t seem to be being heard loudly, certainly within the planning profession.

      Hi Rebecca – thanks for pointing that out, hopefully have fixed it. If you’d like a copy of the (Word version) of the 5Is book let me know at Do keep in touch on implementation of CPTED, also check out Rachel Armitage and Leanne Monchuk at Applied Criminology Huddersfield Uni. Cheers Paul
