CONSULTATION OPEN: COVID-19 SUMP guidance – have your say!

By Fiona Twisse / Updated: 18 Jun 2020

The COVID-19 crisis is causing cities and regions to adapt urban mobility measures at a rate and scale never seen before. Major challenges and opportunities exist for urban mobility in the coming months.

In this challenging time, it is vital that guidance and support is provided to local authorities to adapt to new conditions and ensure that sustainable mobility is prioritised in the recovery from COVID-19. For this reason, CIVITAS-SATELLITE and SUMPPlus are preparing a SUMP practitioners’ briefing on COVID-19, investigating how cities can respond in the coming months to the exit from total or partial lockdown, without forgetting their long-term goals and ambitions for urban mobility.

Interested stakeholders are welcome to feed into the development of the SUMP practitioners' briefing on COVID-19 to ensure that this guidance provides suitable information and advice for local authorities to adapt sustainable urban mobility post-lockdown.

The written consultation process is now open, and the document is available here. Comments are welcome until 24 June 2020 by email.
