10. How can housing be made safer?
Communities that are organised, with resident associations and strong leaders, are generally safe communities. Community activities should be encouraged so residents get to know each other. The design of the housing development should be based on design principles for safety. All common areas should be well-defined and visible from the housing units. Staircases and landings should be shared by a small number of households. The entire complex should be well-lit and well-maintained.
