Ljutomer is a settlement of short distance, which the people make it in a bigger part by walking or cycling. This potential has not been enough exploited by the planners in the past - the deployment of some new activities (mainly shops) has extended the routes and encourage residents to use more cars. The similar restrictions for residents represent also the conditions for walking and cycling - a network of sidewalks or cycle tracks is not continuous and it is subordinate to car and often blocked. Although recent road projects include sidewalks and bike paths, their implementation is lagging behind for good practice elsewhere.

Stakeholder participation and citizen involvement, 2. Institutional cooperation between sectors and disciplines, 3. Identification of the most effective policy measures and 4. Monitoring and evaluation of progress in SUMP development. For each challenge, the project cities analyze their local mobility situation, develop new strategies how to tackle their urban mobility problems and test solutions to overcome barriers in participation, cooperation, measure selection as well as monitoring and evaluation in more than forty pilot schemes.
