The City of Gosnells Safe City Urban Design Strategy (2001) is based around the premise of "designing out crime". Key principles behind the strategy include to maximise visibility and surveillance, and to reduce the isolation of people, houses and areas which make them vulnerable to crime. The strategy provides design recommendations with regard to overall urban structures, streets and parking, subdivision and houses, parks and landscaping, fences and walls, windows and doors, and lighting and signage.
