Please note: Submitting an online application form means we receive your application and you will then receive an invoice. Once we have received payment, your membership will be confirmed, subject to approval by Directors of the UK Cohousing Network at the next Board meeting (which will not be unreasonably withheld).  We will create and activate a website account for you on receipt of the payment of the membership fee.
