Our Approach to engagement
In progressing its plans and proposals, the LDA promotes a proactive and inclusive approach to community and stakeholder engagement, starting from the earliest stages in the planning and design process, through to construction and eventual occupation of a housing scheme. The LDA supports proportionate engagement processes, aiming to provide opportunities to hear the views of communities at key stages. The LDA believes that adopting this ethos will support improved design and planning outcomes, and ultimately the delivery of sustainable, inclusive developments that are well integrated with existing communities. The views of stakeholders vary and are diverse – the LDA is committed to finding resolutions that balance common concerns and reflect the wider public interest in a manner consistent with the goal to build sustainable, affordable / cost rental housing developments. The Agency adopts a tailored, project specific approach to each community and stakeholder engagement process it undertakes. The scale, scope and methods applied to undertake non-statutory engagement varies according to specific requirements and condition.
Want to Participate
The Land Development Agency is pleased to announce this next stage of community and stakeholder engagement for the St. Joseph’s Hospital project, building on the comprehensive consultation completed for the Colbert Quarter Spatial Framework previously (in 2022)
The Draft Masterplan document and a high-level Executive Summary document are live on this project website www.colbertquarter.ie and the LDA Community Liaison Office look forward to receiving your comments and feedback on the latest proposals. The project is a key opportunity to develop a vibrant and sustainable urban neighbourhood which is well-connected and supports the social, economic and cultural well-being of a significant area of Limerick City
We will be holding meetings locally for all stakeholders and interested parties on these plans. Please check this website for all details of forthcoming events.
