Abstract: This paper suggests that the security and safety of women, particularly in public spaces within neighbourhood, is affected by many factors which include the environmental designs of public spaces. This paper focuses on criminal activities, which is identified as one main factor of security and safety in the neighbourhood, and the area of concern is narrowed to two neighbourhood zones with Hougang Housing Estate The analysis relies on results from a questionnaire conducted with 150 female respondents residing in the studied zones, observations of the studied public spaces, interviews with individuals and organizations, as well as a group discussion between women of various ages. The analysis of the results shows that different groups felt differently on whether the environmental designs of public spaces affect the crime rate and safety and security of the public spaces, due to different experiences, educational level and knowledge. The environmental designs of public spaces should not be the only determinant of safety and security level of the public spaces, and requires the co¬ operation and co-ordination of many parties.
