2020 SIG/Emerging Planners - Crime prevention through environmental design

This event took place on Wednesday 14th October, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm.

Join Chris Butler in this interesting session as he presents on his experiences as a CPTED practitioner and Urban Design Team Leader at Auckland Council.

He will explore how development enabled under the Unitary Plan is changing the way we look at CPTED and the implications of this on neighbourhood outcomes.

Chris is an urban designer with over 15 years’ experience across both the public and private sector. After completing master’s degrees in town planning and urban design from the University of Auckland, Chris joined Harrison Grierson Consultants where he was involved in delivering CPTED assistance to local government and private sector clients throughout New Zealand on a range of proposals including; residential, commercial, town centre and open space. Chris has published a number of articles nationally and internationally on the topic of crime prevention and urban design and is seen as a leader in the field of CPTED.

In January 2012, Chris was invited to present at the Comparative CPTED Conference at the University of Sydney, on the link between CPTED and Urban Design and in June 2012, he received a high commendation from the Australian and New Zealand Society of Criminology for a CPTED report and concept design of the Maraenui Shopping Centre. In 2013 the Maraenui project was awarded the New Zealand Planning Institute Rodney Davies Project Award. In that same year Chris was invited by the Health Promotion Agency (HPA) to present a series of workshops around the country on CPTED and its application to licensed and off-licensed premises.

In November 2015, Chris joined Auckland Council as a Principal Urban Designer where he was tasked with providing urban design advice on a wide range of resource consent applications across the Auckland region. These assessments related to a range of residential, commercial, mixed use and subdivision proposals. In my current role as team leader I manage a team of seven urban design experts who provide specialist urban design advice into the resource consents process.
