Greater Granville Regeneration Strategy Health Impact Assessment

Sydney West Area Health Service, NSW Depart of Housing & Parramatta City Council

Urban regeneration is a complex, multifaceted process which has the potential to transform  Granville, a relatively disadvantaged suburb located close to the centre of Sydney in the local  government area of Parramatta. For the community of Granville it raises concerns of increased  densification, and creates expectations of improvements for this historic suburb.

Parramatta City Council and NSW Department of Housing have formed a formal partnership to  facilitate a collaborative approach to urban renewal. The regeneration of Granville was a project  initiated under this partnership agreement. Sydney West Area Health Service (SWAHS) became  involved for the purpose of conducting a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) on the urban  regeneration strategy and to participate in a whole of government and whole of community  context.
