The People’s Transition - Larchville and Lisduggan June 2024

04 June 2024

The Larchville and Lisduggan People’s Transition project began in April 2023 and ran until June 2024. The intention of the project was to listen to and learn from the community’s needs and abilities and then attempt to design a number of climate solutions that would benefit the community and address a number of the main local development priorities. This report captures the People’s Transition process as it was applied in the communities of Larchville and Lisduggan, two residential neighbourhoods located approximately two kilometres southeast of Waterford City Centre.

The solutions and pathways forward proposed in this report are the development of green spaces for mental health by and for the community, a repair café and Library of Things, and a ‘whole of community’ approach to retrofitting. The first two solutions aim to build the capacity to engage with, and benefit from, climate action at a local level, while the third seeks to create opportunities for employment and community wealth building while addressing energy poverty and persistent deprivation. These specific solutions are designed to meet the need for climate action whilst also being realistic and beneficial for the residents of Larchville and Lisduggan.
