Assure Consulting developed in partnership with a social consultant, Australia’s first combined Health and Social Impact Assessment of a regional development plan titled “Health and Social Impact Assessment of the South East Queensland Regional Plan 2005-2025. This required an extensive and detailed literature review that became a published document titled: “Health Wellbeing and the Urban Environment – A summary of Known Relationships”. This document is the lead research paper in the emerging field of Health Impact Assessment within Australia. Coordination amongst 18 South East Queensland Councils and State Government Departments was required to deliver this project. This project was recognised by the Planning Institute of Australia for an award due its innovation and success.
