Sustainability Appraisal

Working with CAG’s appraisal specialists can help you to meet your statutory responsibilities and develop better policies and plans.

We provide advice and support on Sustainability Appraisal (SA) and Strategic Environmental Assessment(SEA). We draw on many years experience of appraising a wide range of plans and strategies including Local Plans and Neighbourhood Plans.

Our client-focused approach means that we work closely with you to deliver what you need when you need it.

We can:

  • Screen a plan for SEA
  • Undertake a complete SA/SEA or parts of it
  • Provide a quality review of a SA/SEA you have undertaken, for use at an Examination in Public or other purposes
  • Provide technical advice on a SA/SEA you are doing yourself
  • Deliver consultation on a SA/SEA
