In Queensland proponents of major projects are required to develop social impact management plans (SIMPs). SIMPs are developed after assessing the project’s social impacts.

The SIMP will consider strategies for managing identified social impacts at each stage of the project: construction, commissioning, operation and the decommissioning. It must describe:

·the project’s potential (positive and negative) impacts

·mitigation and management strategies

·implementation actions

·roles and responsibilities of proponents, government, service providers and communities.

Social Planning Services Australia have the experience and skills required to develop a SIMP in consultation with key government and the community stakeholders and incorporates relevant and achievable mitigation and management strategies.

SIMPs are only the beginning, once developed they need to be monitored and reviewed. Social Planning Services Australia is able to provide audits and ongoing monitoring and review of SIMPs.
