Option generation

By Admin Eltis / Updated: 28 May 2019

Definition – Option generationinfo-icon refers to the development of a range of strategies or packages of measures that represent different ways of meeting SUMP objectives. The options generated are typically subjected to appraisalinfo-icon processes, so that the most promising can be developed in further detail.

Relevance to SUMP – The SUMP process encourages the development of scenarios to help planners and stakeholders better understand the likely combined effects that different variables (e.g. economic growth, land use development patterns and SUMP measureinfo-icon packages etc.) could have. The KonSULT web toolinfo-icon developed by ITS Leeds incorporates an option generator which allows users to create a list of ranked policyinfo-icon instruments (measures) based on individual search criteria.
