[Extract] In this chapter we explore the experience of an Australian State (provincial) government in institutionalising social assessment in land use planning and development assessment. We focus on the experience of Queensland's Social Impact Assessment Unit (SIAU). The SIAU was the State's nominated lead agency in social impact assessment (SIA) from 1993 to its recent demise in 2000. The Unit was located within the State Department of Families, Youth and Community Care (DFYCC), previously the Department of Family Services and Aboriginal and Islander Affairs (DFSAIA). The Department is a social welfare agency that delivers a range of programmes to socially disadvantaged sectors of the community.
