The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan for Torroella de Montgrí, Girona, Spain

Francesc Baquer, Laura Plana


The Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan (SUMP) for Torroella de Montgrí — Pla Estratègic Municipal de Mobilitat Sostenible — is a strategic planning document that proposes a territorial and urban project for the municipality. Its goal is to guide the transition process of a car-oriented territory towards a inclusive model based on the improvement of the accessibility, the respect for the environment and the collective well-being.
The shape of the territory is in the centre of the proposed projects, which support the idea of a polycentric and open territory where the empty space becomes a fundamental project figure, acquiring a primary role in relation to the constructed space. The hypothesis supported by the SUMP is that it is possible to reduce the external costs of the current territorial model based on private car use with a collective project on mobility spaces.
