Planning for Safer Communities: A Guide to Planning for Safety of Women and Children in Small and Rural Communities

Planning for Safer Communities: A Guide to Planning for Safety of Women and Children in Small and Rural Communities (1999). Although it is directed at rural and small communities, this guide by the Cowichan Women Against Violence Society can be used by cities as well for including women’s safety concerns in planning policies. The guide outlines the main areas that can be targeted for safety in community plans (fear of crime and violence, limitations to activities, factors that affect safety and sense of safety). It also provides step-by-step suggestions on how each area administered by a community plan can include provisions for safety (i.e. residential areas, industrial areas, etc.). Part I and part II are available in English.
