Cohousing Berkshire

Primary tabs

We aim to create a cohousing development in Berkshire which will give 20 to 40 households of various sizes and age ranges their own self-contained homes, a percentage of which will be housing for rent or part-buy.  Our common indoor areas will include kitchen, dining area and lounge for shared meals and socializing. There will also be provision for office and workshop space, potentially small business units for rent, and some common outdoor space.

The development will be managed by the residents using consensus decision making where possible. Whether new-build, renovation or a mix of the two, the architecture and design will facilitate social and environmental sustainability. The location will have good transport connections, and we will foster good relations with, and aim to provide some benefits to, the surrounding community.

Our Community Interest Company is called KATCH

Stage: 
The focus is on finding a site and raising money. The group will have to work up a business plan and may have commissioned some feasibility studies. They may have their first experience of small scale contracts with professionals. This stage ends when a ‘definite’ site is found. There may be several iterations of this stage.
Regular Events: 
We meet bimonthly on Sundays from 12:30 at a member's house. We start with a very enjoyable bring and share meal, followed by a meeting from around 2. Newcomers are welcome - please get in touch!
