Cohousing in the UK

Cohousing is a growing phenomena in the UK. Inspired by successful prototype schemes such as LILAC, Lancaster and Springhill, Stroud, many groups of people are coming together to try to form their own communities, getting involved in the design, procurement and building of their homes.

What is Cohousing?

CoHo acted as the Project Manager for the LILAC scheme, providing expert help to the group in negotiating the purchase of the site, employing consultants and contractors, developing the design, and navigating the difficulties of the whole development process.

Since then we have been involved with a number of other groups, either providing informal advice, helping with bids for sites, working on development and finance plans or providing a full Project Management package.

Some links to Cohousing groups we have or are currently working with are on the left.
