An urban regeneration health impact assessment (HIA) was conducted collaboratively with three major government agencies and the local community in 2005 and 2006 to identify health impacts of a major land use strategy outlined in the consultant’s report for the Greater Granville Regeneration Plan – Stage 1 (Sydney: Hassall Pty Limited, 2005). Health impacts were identified and agreed recommendations were developed to ameliorate negative impacts, with a formal partnership agreement to progress implementation and monitoring. The Granville HIA has been influential in changing major policy initiatives of Parramatta City Council and the NSW Department of Housing, contributing to positive health outcomes for the Granville community.
