South East Queensland Regional Plan Health & Social Impact Assessment

Queensland Health, Queensland Department of Communities & Queensland Office of Urban Management

Abstract: A health and social impact assessment  of the South East Queensland Regional Plan was  undertaken in 2005 (Queensland Government,  2005). It is one of few attempts nationally and  globally to apply health and social impact assessment  to a regional planning process. The assessment  methodology builds on existing  evidence-based research, methodologies and the  combined professional experience of both health  and social impact assessment practices in  Queensland. The approach adds further strength  and rigour to planning strategies to enhance the  health and well-being of communities. The way the  South East Queensland Regional Plan is implemented,  and how the plan influences access to jobs,  education, affordable housing and social infrastructure,  and the achievement of social inclusion  and connectedness within communities, will be  central to future health and well-being of people in  South East Queensland.

Social Impact Assessment of the Lower Hunter Regional Strategy

Hunter New England Area Health Service & NSW Premier’s Department

The Lower Hunter Regional Strategy prepared by the Department of Planning identifies how development in the region will be managed on a sustainable basis over the next 25 years. The Strategy, projecting a population increase of 125 000 people, has the potential to influence the health and social well-being of the community and the equitable access to, and distribution of services across the region.

In order to ensure that further disadvantage is not created by the implementation of the Strategy, the Hunter Regional Coordination Management Group, comprising of senior representatives of state government agencies from the Hunter Region of New South Wales, Australia, completed an equity-focused Social Impact Assessment of the Strategy. A draft version of the Strategy was released for public comment on 4 November 2005 and the Social Impact Assessment was produced in response to this release.
