Economic impact assessment

economic-impactDevelopment plans often require an in-depth analysis of the economic and social impact of that development.

This impact can be expressed in indicators such as population growth, job creation, Gross Value Add (GVA), connectedness, social amenity, quality of life and even ‘happiness’.

We have experience of working on small and large developments to understand both the range of different impacts and their scale.

We often work collaboratively with specialists in areas such as transport and the environment to draw together published data and/or the results of research among local communities to provide comprehensive impact assessments based on the best evidence available.
