A Safer Stranraer

ANTI-CRIME measures built in to a new housing development in Stranraer will help to keep the occupants safer.

Items such as laminated glass, solid front doors with high specification locks, access controls in flats and no footpaths through the development should all help to deter the criminal.

In other areas where "Secured by Design" as the system is known, has been adopted, crime has been cut by between 54 and 67 per cent.

On Thursday, as readers last week were told, a "Secured by Design Award" was handed over to Loreburn Housing Association who developed the 1.5 million Burnside Court homes on the site of the former SAI building off Edinburgh Road by Acting Chief Constable Bob Ovens. He congratulated the housing association on achieving the award.

Constable Ian Howie, community safety officer, was involved in giving crime prevention advice virtually from the start of the project. And he was in Stranraer to see its completion.
