The recent global changes in GIS technology advancement have significantly influenced the spatial development of urban areas concerning its impacts on the surroundings. This paper addresses the formation of a GIS-based technology in predicting the potential socio-economic consequences due to the development. The approach employed was extensively based on a series of baseline data, models, spatial and statistical analysis to develop a prototype GIS system in predicting future socio-economic impacts, called Development Impact Assessment. Furthermore, this paper also uses a practical technique of ‘what if?' scenario which can assist in charting possible complicated linkages between criteria from multiple sources. The system consists of some selected vital components of the socio-economic, including car parking requirement, a projection of commercial floor space and estimated job creation. The results demonstrate the strengths and abilities of GIS to provide a spatial analysis showing the distribution of the socio-economic impacts in urban planning system that could assist the local planning authority in creating a sustainable living environment. Thus, the GIS system also carries the value of incorporating the complexity of wicked problems existed in urban planning into a technology-based device. This GIS model analysis is efficient to determine the sustainability of urban areas, taking into the consideration the challenges that we face today
