What is Social Impact Assessment and why does it matter?

It can be used for small projects and for very large urban renewal projects – like Green Square or Redfern Waterloo. The aim is to foresee what social outcomes are likely and prevent negative outcomes, especially severe consequences, and to improve positive outcomes writes Alison Ziller in the South Sydney Herald of March 2012.
