    Default Norris Green estate designed to stop crime has won police award

    Apr 10 2009 by Laura Sharpe, Liverpool Daily Post

    NORRIS Green?s Boot Estate has been given an award by police for its crime reducing design.

    New City Vision have built all their homes with extra security features.

    The scheme is part of Secured by Design, which looks at how estates are designed to ?design out? crime.

    Greater emphasis is placed on features such as extra lighting.

    Research shows Secured by Design can reduce burglary by 50% and criminal damage by 25%.

    Merseyside Police?s Force Architectural Liaison Officer, Constable Paul Martin, said: ?Problems seen at the early stages were addressed and easily rectified prior to construction.

    ?This safer design, along with the presence of the neighbourhood policing team, can only be good news for the residents of this community.?

    would that be the newbuild Ellergreen estate?

    Pity the houses have only been built 75% of actual size.

    Still, I have hope for the regeneration of the area, as I live & work here!

    Find a good source for looking at the crime statistics for ST Helens and look at the Burgalry % bet you its around 1% reason its low is because the community prefer to sort it their way...and its working as the statistics prove it.
