A community development project in a Sydney suburb provides an opportunity to explore the potential of community development as a means for ‘street crime’ prevention. Violence and crime are seen as social problems associated with social, economic and political disadvantage. A broad programme of social development is undertaken, aimed at increasing educational and recreational opportunities for children and young adults, and at promoting inclusion and the capacity of local people to deal with social problems in their area. Outcomes suggest that a combination of social projects, modifications to the built environment and community development processes, can be an effective means for creating safer, more neighbourly places, as well as achieving social justice outcomes for disadvantaged people.
