LLI-386 Transformations from Slum to Chic (Trans-form)

The project aims to revitalize municipality-owned brownfields by transforming them into sustainable and attractive areas for inhabitants, entrepreneurs and visitors.

As a result of the implementation of the project four territories with environmental problems in Latvia and Lithuania municipalities have been improved in total area of 5.53 ha – in Lūznava Manor (Rēzekne Municipality), Daugavpils Fortress, Krāslava and Skaistkalnis Park in Panevėžys. A “heritage” from the soviet times – a dormitory building – was demolished in Lūznava Manor Park and afterwards, playground for children was installed. In Kraslava old sewage treatment plants were demolished and landscaping works were done in the neighborhood of Kalnu Street, while in Daugavpils Fortress the territory of the 4th Bastion has been cleaned of waste, waste bins and benches have been installed, and a new lawn has been created for sports and leisure activities.

During the project the spatial planning specialists from project partner municipalities of Daugavpils, Rēzekne, Krāslava, Panevezys and Visaginas participated in the theoretical training series about planning and implementing sustainable revitalisation of  brownfields. They as well took part in experience exchange and study trips to the project partner municipalities and other locations in Europe – Prague in Czech Republic, Berlin in Germany and Eindhoven in Netherlands – famous for their well known success stories in urban planning.

Methodological e-handbook for municipalities “From Degradation to Regeneration” about urban regeneration and revitalisation has been elaborated and will be further used in everyday work of planning specialists. Project’s joint activities have resulted as well in development of 5 pilot concepts and action plans for further revitalisation of the brownfield areas in 5 municipalities.
