Community Impact Statements (CIS) utilises a social impact assessment methodology. In Queensland the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (OLGR) require a CIS be lodged with an application for a gaming or liquor licence. A CIS identifies how activities on the licensed premises will impact on the community in which it is located. Social Planning Services Australia has the social impact assessment expertise required to prepare quality and informed community impact statements.

A CIS is required with the following applications:


·new licence (except for community other)

·detached bottle shop

·variation of licence

·extended trading hours approval on a regular basis to include trading between 12 midnight and 5:00am.


·hotel gaming licence

·club gaming licence

·club additional premises gaming licence

·application to increase gaming machines.

The OLGR state that an CIS should include:

·the existing and projected population and demographic trends in the locality

·the number of persons residing in, resorting to or passing through the locality, and their respective expectations

·the likely health and social impacts that granting the application would have on the population of the locality

·an assessment of the magnitude, duration and probability of the occurrence of the health and social impacts

·the proximity to identified sub-communities within the locality of the proposed licensed premises or proposed premises to which the proposed permit is to relate - for example, schools and places of worship - and the likely impact on those sub-communities.
