ENDURANCE E-Update February 2016

ENDURANCE is a three-year project promoting the development and implementation of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs), and English/Welsh Local Transport Plans (LTPs) are a type of SUMP.

The latest ENDURANCE E-Update, which is copy edited by Act TravelWise, has a theme of 'Sustainable Mobility in Small Cities and Rural Areas' and is introduced as follows:

Many of the resources on sustainable mobility planning are targeted at larger cities. However, half of European citizens live in smaller cities and towns, facing their own specific challenges. In this e-update we will take a closer look at those challenges as well as at the great opportunities for adopting sustainable mobility on this smaller small scale. The SUMP methodology is very suitable for these smaller cities and towns.

Note that in the UK we have an informal network of 20 local authorities on LTP/SUMP matters. Profiles of each of these local authorities can be found in the right-hand menu here. The profiles include links to the LTP documents themselves where possible.
