Their space, my space, our space? Report of the 2009 Redland City Council Youth and Public Space Survey

Crane, Philip R. (2010) Their space, my space, our space? Report of the 2009 Redland City Council Youth and Public Space Survey. Redland City Council, Redland, QLD.


This report analyses data collected through the Redland City Council’s Young People and Public Space Survey of 2148 high school students aged 12-19. The survey conducted in 2009 explored their sense of safety and experiences in public spaces across the City, and views on what Council could do to improve these. It is apparent they base their assessment of a space as ‘public’ on their ‘use’ of a space alone or with friends, and where strangers may be present, rather than on a type of ownership of a space (public/ private). The findings of the survey are summarised according to the themes of safety, community attitudes towards young people being in public spaces, young people and authorities, young people’s views of what is needed, and understanding different young people’s experiences of public space.
