Abstract
The paper deals with the relationship between crime and the physical (built) environment and specifically the housing environment in poorer communities. It discusses the concept of crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) with respect to its theoretical approach, its basic principles and its application within the South African context. The strengths and limitations of this approach are also addressed.
