SUMP Self-Assessment tool

You would like to develop a SUMP, but don't know where to start? You would like to evaluate the status of mobility planning in your city and receive tailored feedback how to further improve?

The SUMP Self-Assessment tool is particularly useful for local authorities who find themselves at the beginning of their SUMP process, as well as cities and regions who want to evaluate their planning status. By answering custom-made questions, local authorities can assess how their current urban mobility plan aligns with the SUMP approach.

Individual feedback is given to help identify potential areas of improvement, to determine areas that are already aligned with SUMP principles, and to provide specific measures on how to advance the process.

The updated Self-Assessment includes tailor-made questions for different SUMP starting points: 

Planners who want to assess the quality of a completed SUMP
Local authorities who want to assess the quality of their general mobility planning activities before starting a SUMP
Planners working on the regional level

Extended feedback is given following completion of the questionnaire. This provides an individual assessment, advice, links to further reading, and relevant good practice examples.

The tool has been developed by CIVITAS SUMPs-Up project. It is based on the second edition of the second EU SUMP Guidelines, which were released in autumn 2019.
