About

Sussex Street Cohousing owns a development site in Sussex Street, Norwich, which was purchased in August 2015. It's a small brownfield site in a conservation area, in walking distance of the city centre. We plan to build our homes to a high standard and move in in 2018.

The Sussex Street site has an existing planning permission for 17 units, mostly two and three bed, plus 238 square meters of communal space. Outside space is limited to patios, balconies and a south-facing courtyard, plus an undercroft car park.

Our group grew out of Norwich Cohousing, a loose group that spent many years looking for a site or a development partner. Now we have our site the membership is growing - both in size and in the sense of community. New members welcome.
