Quod has specialist expertise in assessing the social and economic impact arising from development. This can form part of the Environmental Impact Assessment but extends into advising masterplanners on the provision of social infrastructure and open space, and articulating the benefits of development through bespoke modelling and advocacy.
The Socio-Economic team focuses on three main areas, Regeneration and Economic Development, Socio-Economic Assessment and Strategic Land Strategy. We adopt a bespoke approach to each project, to achieve optimum outcomes for our clients.
Quod’s different perspective means a greater understanding of what development means to an area, to its residents and to councillors – from spending, jobs and training, to housing for local people – and how this can win support and successful planning outcomes.
The main services our Socio-economic team can offer include:
Socio-Economic Impact Assessment | Economic Development Strategies |Regeneration Statements | Employment and Training Strategies |Health Impact Assessment & Equalities Impact Assessment | Population & Child Yield Modelling |Social Infrastructure Planning | Strategic Development Advice.
