In United Kingdom planning law, a sustainability appraisal is an appraisal of the economic, environmental, and social effects of a plan from the outset of the preparation process to allow decisions to be made that accord with sustainable development.

Since 2001, sustainability appraisals have had to be in conformity with the EU directive on strategic environmental assessment.
