Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm a model case? Crime prevention through environmental design in Stockholm, Sweden

Publikation: KonferencebidragPaperForskningpeer review


Starting in Denmark in the 1980s and followed by initiatives in Sweden since the 1990s, several guidelines for Crime Prevention through urban planning and building design have been developed in the Nordic welfare countries. Standardisation institutes, national crime prevention councils and some central government agencies have contributed to put these guidelines in practice. Representatives have also taken part in similar work at CEN in Brussels. In Sweden, the Stockholm Police started to work out guidelines and give advice - with the mixed new urban district Ärvinge near Kista as their primary early test case in the 1990s. The result was very low crime rates providing some evidence that planning and design mattered to reduce crime and feelings of un-safety. This work resulted in the thoroughly worked-out major guide for housing areas 'Bo Tryggt' in 2001, revised in 2005 with inclusion of a process approach. The presentation will discuss the challenges of putting in practice the guidelines of Crime Prevention Through Urban Planning and Building Design in Hammarby Sjöstad, Stockholm.
