Jam has significant experience of undertaking Sustainability Appraisals/Strategic Environmental Assessments (SA/SEAs) and Sustainability Strategies on behalf of public and private sector clients.

Jam also offers a review service of the SA process and reports for both Local Authority and private sector clients. Succinct critiques of the work undertaken are provided in relation to the SA process, legal compliance and soundness of the plan.  Jam's work has led to the withdrawal or  modifications of numerous SAs and Local Plans, particularly in relation to site allocations.
