The paper provides information on the tool for assessing the social, technical and environmental security of spatial development, which has been developed by the team of security engineering experts from the Czech Republic. The tool contributes to the preventive protection of population, technical infrastructure and the environment against the negative impacts of inconsiderate spatial development. Firstly, the relations between sustainable development and spatial development are briefly presented together with the most significant semi-quantitative methods of risk analysis being the starting points for creating the spatial development security assessment tool. The second part of the paper is focused on the presentation of the above mentioned analytical tool named “The Spatial Development Impact Assessment”. The following principal parts of the tool are presented in the chapter: The Assessment process algorithm; The Catalogue of hazard and asset groups; and The Spatial development impact matrix.
