Social Impact Assessment of the sale of further social housing in Millers Point
In 2013, social housing properties accounted for around 83% of dwellings in Millers Point, located at the north-western edge of the Sydney CBD, between The Rocks and Barangaroo, with some families living in the area for over six generations.
The area was undergoing strong transition, with an increasing ageing population and decreasing number of children and families, and increasing residents with complex social issues moving there due to Housing NSW’s Allocation Policy.
Cred was engaged by NSW Land and Housing Corporation to undertake an independent Social Impact Assessment (SIA) to identify the potential social impacts that may result from the Land and Housing Corporation’s evaluation of social housing in Millers Point, Sydney.
An important part of the evaluation was to ensure that the community had input into the review process and to ensure that the social impacts of any decision were understood and considered.
Cred took part in sessions with Miller’s Point residents to inform the Social Impact Assessment (Source: Cred Consulting)
