Welcome to CDM Smith.

Social Sustainability Research

Our team members have a particular interest in developing socially sustainable communities, stemming from specialisation in the preparation of over 40 social / community plans for local governments, greenfield areas and urban infill areas. Many of these studies have been concerned with community health and wellbeing, and the creation of communities that are safe, inclusive, vibrant and attractive. 

They undertake social research and deliver strategies predominantly for local government in order to improve outcomes for communities.
