The ADVANCE Audit Scheme was tested between March and October 2013. The Working Group consisted of 8 participants.

The Local Action Plan for the City of Agioi-Anargyroi & Kamatero, a municipality part of Athens Metropolitan Agglomeration, was developed in the context of the ADVANCE Project. During the 8-month process, the city assessed its sustainable mobility policy and planning, and the strengths and weaknesses have been pointed to form an initial Local Action Plan (LAP) for improvements and mobility upgrades. The LAP has undergone a consultation with the relevant local stakeholders.

Considering that Agioi-Anargyroi & Kamatero is a Starting City, a lot of emphasis has been placed on internal (re)organisation and on low cost measures. Additionally, these measures have another advantage: they are easy to implement, so these “quick wins” actions can efficiently and effectively improve the mobility. The vision driving the current Action Plan is for Agioi-Anargyroi & Kamatero: “to become an Advancing City by 2016”.
