Eight municipalities in the region of North Limburg in The Netherlands have come together to develop and implement a Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP). Using a collaborative approach, they have attempted to tackle mobility challenges in a polycentric region that features urban and rural centres. The region is car-dependent with an ageing and declining population; all of which has had an impact on its SUMP approach. The involvement of each of the eight municipalities is voluntary.

The CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project is hosting an event on 12 December 2018, 09.15 - 13.00, in Brussels (Belgium), as part of the ongoing process to revise the EU SUMP Guidelines.

For local, national and European level officials working on SUMPs, this represents a prime opportunity to contribute to the next generation of the EU SUMP Guidelines and help shape EU mobility policy.

This month features case studies on the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan of the City of Koprivnica and Micro depots in Frankfurt – a new approach to urban freight deliveries that tackles congestion and pollution issues.
