About

We are a group of 5 households (aged between 30 years and 60+ years). We have identified a barn for conversion set in 5 acres of land 2 miles outside Leamington Spa and are about to seek planning permission. We propose living as a co-housing community with ecological principles. Some households would derive their livelihood from the land, at least partially. The site neighbours a community supported agriculture initiative of which all households are long term members. We propose a self-build, hopefully passivhaus, or with high ecological standards, shared renewable energy generation, and reduced travel footprint.
