Audit 2012

Auditor: Max Hanander

The ADVANCE Audit Scheme was tested between June and October 2012. The Working Group consisted of 12 participants.

The Local Action Plan in Malmö is built around the one major task of developing a new Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan. In this endeavour, certain aspects and methods were highlighted and prioritised. The Action Plan was perceived as a starting point that sets out the main directions for Malmö’s efforts when it comes to developing a new Mobility Plan that would bridge the potential gaps between existing policies and plans within the city administration. This way, the Plan can be perceived as a strategy to approach existing targets in different steering documents of the City.

Some weaknesses within the process and its implementation were identified in Malmö and they will be addressed in the process towards a new Mobility Plan.
