Project Overview

Playing a part in regenerating Longford Town

Longford Nua enables local people to play an active part in regenerating Longford Town. It aims to encourage a broad cross-section of the community to think differently about their town, and to see potential for the future.

How does it work?

Longford Nua is accessible through the Space Engagers app, where contributing to the project is easy.

1  Upload your pictures

Longford Nua asks people to share pictures of places in the town under three categories:

Stories you know of from the past

What they observe about the town in the present

Any ideas you have for the future

2 Add Information

Once a picture has been taken the user is prompted to provide information, for example on what have they recorded and why. The picture and information is then posted onto a shared map that everyone can see.

3  Interact with other posts

Contribute to the community by starting or join a discussion on any post that interests you. Users can like, comment on, and share any post, generating conversations locally and further afield.

Collected Information

What about the data?

The data gathered provides insight into the housing situation and provides a starting point for investigations into selected properties that may be suitable for reuse.

The data collected will help to inform and inspire the community and decision makers.

The map is accessible to anyone and it is possible to download the data in different formats from the web app.
