CHAPTER 8

BRITISH CASE STUDIES

INTRODUCTION
This chapter follows on from Chapter 7 by looking in more depth at three case studies of aspects of British practice. Clearly, three case studies cannot possibly do justice to the breadth and variety of British practice, so we make no claims in this respect. Rather, they have been chosen primarily because they illustrate elements of that practice that are of particular significance for the purposes of this book, in that they illustrate the application in practice of some of the key policy ideas introduced in Chapter 7. All three, to a significant extent, represent 'work in progress' which will no doubt continue to evolve. None of them can be described as finished products on which all necessary monitoring information has been assembled, so that informed judgements can be made about their success or failure, although all three in their different ways have been the subjects of (adverse or supportive) commentary from time to time. They also represent different spatial scales of activity, although a common feature of all three is that their practical application is at a relatively localised level. The three case studies chosen are:
(1) the Association of Chief Police Officers' Secured By Design (SBD) scheme, which is a national initiative applied at the local level (that is, it applies to an individual development initiative);
(2) Salford City Council's work with the Greater Manchester Police and others to pull together a partnership and to generate a strategy which begins to implement the Crime and Disorder Act, 1998;
(3) The redevelopment of Hulme in Manchester's inner city via a set of design principles heavily influenced by the 'New Urbanist' movement and containing an explicit set of views about the relationships between crime and environmental design.

These cases are directly linked, however. Although it is probably not 'typical' of recent British urban regeneration initiatives because of the scale of demolition and rebuilding it has entailed, the Hulme case study is interesting for present purposes because it is about an approach that set out to reject the SBD approach from the outset; and, because it helps to explain these differences, some aspects of
