LLDC Women and Girls Safety Project

London Legacy Development Corporation

In 2021, the London Legacy Development Corporation launched the Women and Girls Safety Project in an attempt to address gender inequality in urban design and planning. The project brought together stakeholders from a broad range of sectors and established a collective — involving landowners, developers, construction firms, the police, education officers, and other bodies responsible for managing public spaces — to develop a mutual action plan and work towards a Gender-Inclusive Urban Design Guide. The judges praised this “unique and successful example of public-private collaboration”.
