Definition – An authorityinfo-icon is a person or organisation having political or administrative powers, controls and responsibilities.

Relevance to SUMP – Local public authorities, such as a city, county or metropolitan council/municipality, typically have the powers and responsibility to develop a SUMP. In some cases there is a legislative requirement for the public authority to prepare a SUMP, while in other cases the decision to prepare a SUMP and show leadershipinfo-icon on mobilityinfo-icon issues is made on a voluntary basis.

The SUMP process recognises that a range of authorities beyond the public authority leading SUMP preparation can be important stakeholders in the process. See also governanceinfo-icon and integrationinfo-icon.
