Neighborhhod impacts due to supermarket: influence of city and entrerprise sizes


The identification and assessment of impacts due to new land use proposes is a very relevant theme for technical and scientific knowledge. Its interest resulted in new laws proposition in order to establish policies for terrain occupation. However, these laws usually focuses only bigger proposes, mainly that related to industrial or agricultural activities. The adoption of Neighborhood Impacts Studies in major cities and its subsequent implementation in Law 10.257/2001 emerges as good option for this evaluation.
