Abstract

Home ownership is often viewed as a way to help enable households to build wealth but a threat to the enjoyment of this investment may limit its appeal. One of such threat is crime, which may reduce the desirability of ownership in the affected neighbourhood. The main objective of this paper is to examine a sustainable framework for the control of the trend in housing crime within developing economy like Nigeria. This is carried out through an in-depth analysis of existing literature which reveals a merger of Crime Prevention through Social Development (CPSD) and Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) theories to form Crime Prevention through Social and Environmental Development (CPSED). This is expected to go a long way in controlling residential neighbourhood crime maximally. This research serves as a call to the urban neighbourhood planners, estate managers/realtors and government agencies to see crime prevention as an urgent assignment towards achieving housing sustainability
