ELTIS: Second edition of the Guidelines for developing and implementing a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan
Publication of the second edition of the European SUMP Guidelines marks an important milestone in the take-up of a new planning culture in Europe. This comprehensive revision aims to integrate the dynamic developments in many areas of urban mobility and the rich experience of implementing the concept of Sustainable Urban Mobility Planning since 2013.
This public draft is the result of an intense one-year stakeholder engagement process, coordinated by main authors Rupprecht Consult and led by a special Editorial Board, which includes DG MOVE, the CIVITAS SUMP projects, Eltis, INEA, DG REGIO, JASPERS, and leading mobility researchers. It has been developed and validated in close cooperation with the SUMP community. Starting with a large survey and dedicated session at the SUMP Conference 2018, a number of workshops with practitioners and other experts from all over Europe have taken place. By involving several major city networks closely in the update, special care was taken to include feedback from all types of cities and regions.
This document is a draft of the new SUMP Guidelines, prepared specifically for the sixth annual SUMP Conference in Groningen, 17-18 June 2019. At this event, the SUMP community will be invited once more to discuss and provide comments. After presentation in the opening plenary by one of the main authors, Siegfried Rupprecht, there are two dedicated feedback sessions (B1 and B2). Roundtables discussions in small groups and a large feedback board in the foyer ensure that everyone gets the chance to contribute.
Those that are not able to attend the conference, and also those that do, are invited to provide feedback online under the following link. The feedback survey for the SUMP Guidelines will be available from 17 June until 9 July 2019:
The final version will be published at the CIVITAS Forum Conference in Graz, 2 – 4 October 2019.
