Newcastle Safe City

The Newcastle Safe City Plan 2017-2020 is a four year plan which outlines Council's role, priority areas and partnership opportunities.

The four focus areas within the Newcastle Safe City Plan 2017-2020 include:
  1. Safety through public domain design and the built environment.
  2. Developing and facilitating proactive partnerships and collaborations.
  3. Facilitating community inclusion, empowerment and capacity building.
  4. Delivering integrated, innovative and evidence based solutions.
Key community safety and crime issues have been identified through a process of stakeholder consultation and analysis of current crime statistics.

The Newcastle Safe City Plan 2017-2020 addresses community safety and relevant crime issues across the whole Local Government area (LGA).  The Newcastle After Dark Safe and Vibrant Night Time Economy Plan currently under development, will focus on safety in the Newcastle City Centre at night time.
