Island CoHousing was established in 2018 to plan and build a co-housing development on the isle of Wight.
The project aims to deliver affordable, sustainable homes in a community-focused development consisting of around 20 homes and a range of shared common facilities.
It aims to showcase an alternative form of delivery of new homes and a proactive approach to “building in community”.
The development will be based around 7 core values:
• Communal & Sociable
• Valuing leisure
• Sharing resources
It will help address the shortfall in local house building and affordability gap between household incomes and market house-prices.
