Rationaleinfo-icon

Before starting the work on the next generation of your Sustainable Urban Mobility Planinfo-icon, the lessons learnt so far should be reflected with an eye to new challenges ahead for urban transport and mobilityinfo-icon. This can help to optimise the planning process and the measureinfo-icon selection in the future. Experience from countries where sustainable urban mobility planning has been obligatory for some years (LTP in the UK, PDU in France) shows that each planning cycle helps to improve the expertise on sustainable urban mobility planning and to increase the effectiveness of the next planning round. A first analysis of challenges with the next Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan generation can influence the design of the new planning process and close the circle between the current and the new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.

A further motivation for considering the direction of the next generation Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan is to aim for stronger integrationinfo-icon of other policyinfo-icon areas in future plans.

 

Aims

  • Get prepared for the next planning round.
  • Reflect on experiences with current planning cycle with a view to new challenges ahead.

 

 Tasks

  • Identify new challenges that have developed during the implementation phase (e.g. through discussion with key stakeholders, datainfo-icon analysis).
  • Discuss with key stakeholders how lessons learnt in current planning cycle can help to better respond to these challenges.
  • Consider how policies in other areas could be used to create synergies with mobility policy (land use, energy, environmentinfo-icon, economic development, social inclusioninfo-icon, health and safety).
  • Get prepared to develop the next generation of your Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.

 

Timing and coordination

  • Before starting development of a new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (still within the period of implementing the current plan).

 

Checklist

New challenges ahead for urban transport and mobility identified.
Lessons learnt from current planning cycle used for development of next Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.

 

Example

Lille, France: Preparing the second PDU

At the end of 2005, as prescribed by law, the conurbation of Lille evaluated its Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan from the year 2000. As a result of this evaluationinfo-icon and new developments at the national level, such as, for example, the national Grenelle d’Environnement (Environment Debate), the conurbation decided to initiate a revision in 2006. The results of a general mobility survey in Greater Lille revived the thematic working groups of the first PDU. They were asked to revise and bring in new ideas for the second Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan, which was to cover the period from 2010 to 2020. These thematic working groups met regularly over a four-year period from 2006 to 2010 to discuss the sub-themes and content of the new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.

Lille, France: Preparing the second PDU

At the end of 2005, as prescribed by law, the conurbation of Lille evaluated its Sustainable Urban Mobility Planinfo-icon from the year 2000. As a result of this evaluationinfo-icon and new developments at the national level, such as, for example, the national Grenelle d’Environnement (Environmentinfo-icon Debate), the conurbation decided to initiate a revision in 2006. The results of a general mobilityinfo-icon survey in Greater Lille revived the thematic working groups of the first PDU. They were asked to revise and bring in new ideas for the second Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan, which was to cover the period from 2010 to 2020. These thematic working groups met regularly over a four-year period from 2006 to 2010 to discuss the sub-themes and content of the new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan.

As a main event to include the opinions of the wider public and the main stakeholders, they organised a one-day débat de la mobilité (debate on mobility) in April 2009. During this day, the members of the conurbation’s council discussed the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan issues, themes and possible solutions with councillors of the region and county, as well as a number of invited individuals and experts.

A number of activities was envisaged and described in the new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan that should ensure cooperation with the different stakeholders during the implementation of the actions.

In the chapter “Realisation, monitoringinfo-icon and evaluation” of the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan of Lille, three groups of stakeholders were identified: local institutional and associative partners, the general public and institutional stakeholders outside the territory of the conurbation.

The following activities were defined as part of the objectiveinfo-icon of sharing the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan values within and beyond the metropolitan area of Lille.

Sub-theme 1: Coordination of the actions of the authorityinfo-icon and the local institutions

1.1.Let the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan be a joint engagementinfo-icon of the authority Lille Métropole and different parts of the metropolitan area;

1.2.Develop micro Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans and geographical corridor contracts that link to the contracts of the metropolitan areasinfo-icon;

1.3.Progress towards a situation in which realisation of the metropolitan transport projects is executed by teams that bring together multiple competences (e.g. technical, urban development, etc.) and, if necessary, specifically recruit those with the skills missing in the group, such as in the case of large public transport projects, such as tram-train, high quality bus lanes and the tram network;

1.4.Coordinate the aspects related to mobility and urban development in the different urban planning documents (i.e. PDU, PLU, SCoT, PLH);

1.5. Make use of the commission of disabled persons to develop the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan actions related to the mobility of disabled travellers;

1.6.Let the internal functioning of the Communauté Urbaine Lille Métropole be an example in terms of sustainable mobility;

1.7. Mobilise the institutional partners of Lille Métropole to act effectively and in a coordinated manner within the different planning activities.

Sub-theme 2: Raise awareness and coordinate activities in the promotion of sustainable mobility

2.1Develop communication and make the general public aware of how the mobility system functions and of its link with urban development;

2.2.Continue coordination within the Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan during the realisation of the actions;

2.3. Engage a process of targeted coordination with the main generators of traffic and mobility;

2.4. Accompany local actors in their eco-mobility related efforts.

Sub-theme 3: Promote mobility-related reflection and action at a wider scale

3.1. Construct a mobility plan of the wider metropolitan area in collaborationinfo-icon with the relevant French and Belgian institutional actors;

3.2.Find a specific framework in which to catalyse the inter-metropolitan mobility-related initiatives and activities a) by creating a permanent cross-border mobility forum of the wider metropolitan area and b) by developing cross-cutting actions that involve several organising transport authorities within the framework of the Syndicat Mixte Intermodal de Transport (SMIRT) (e.g. on the development of joint ticketing or the tram-train initiative).
