Chapter 10: Community Safety

10.1. Justification

10.1.1. Leicestershire Constabulary and Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service may request planning obligations to meet the additional costs of emergency service provision resulting from additional development.

10.1.2. Under paragraph 69 of the National Planning Practice Guidance and the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, local planning authorities need to actively work towards design solutions which create safe environments and help reduce crime and the fear of crime. Developers will be expected to contribute to safer communities by investing in design that minimises crime.

10.1.3. Sufficient evidence in respect of need in relation to existing or planned capacity will be required to justify a planning obligation. Where there is clear evidence of the need for additional capital costs in relation to the particular circumstances of the proposed development, particularly those of a larger scale, such contributions may be justified.
