Public consultation is one of the most essential elements in the development of Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan. Public participation is intended at almost every stage of the plan development.

The first consultation, which aims to familiarise stakeholders and residents with the themes of the document and to learn about the needs and perceptions of participants, is planned even before the work starts.   As the idea behind SUMP is to create it for the residents and people who daily work or travel in the Bialystok Functional Area, it determines the wide and thorough participation of stakeholders in creating the plan.

The public consultation process will involve a large number of workshops with the participation of those concerned:

- Residents of the Białystok Functional Area, i.e. the municipalities of Białystok, Choroszcz, Czarna Białostocka, Dobrzyniewo Duże, Juchnowiec Kościelny, Łapy, Supraśl, Turośń Kościelna, Wasilków, Zabłudów,

- Stakeholders of the Białystok Functional Area, i.e. the employees of municipal offices, employees of enterprises, the representatives of municipal units related to spatial planning, transport and the representatives of schools, municipal activist groups or institutions representing specific social groups: seniors, youth, and representatives of persons with disabilities.

Both groups should be actively involved in developing the BFA’s SUMP at every stage, including workshop and consultation meetings.
