Child impact assessment is part of a much broader field of impact assessment, including social (including health) and environmental impact assessment. This review canvasses child impact assessment literature as it relates to local government, with the following parameters:
ž Children and young people aged 18 years and under (‘children’ in this report).
ž What is likely to support effective local authority assessment of impacts on children in terms
