Integrated Impact Assessment

Our Approach


We must ensure that any new or revised policies, practice and strategic decisions relating to the delivery of Council services are considered for impacts an early stage. 

We undertake impact assessments to ensure that we:

  • understand the impact of our business proposals, policies or decisions on different groups and communities
  • use our understanding of impacts to develop better policies and practices
  • help prevent or mitigate against potential negative impacts and reduce disadvantage
  • are more transparent and accountable by demonstrating that likely impacts of proposals have been considered as well as any mitigating action to overcome negative impacts
