We want to build a sustainable, mutually supportive cohousing community in the Cheltenham, Tewkesbury or Stroud area for people aged 50+. We believe that the optimum size would be around eight to fifteen households. All the homes would be very green with minimal energy costs.
We need to be within easy walking distance to local shops, pubs, GP surgery, etc. Good public transport links would also be vital. This suggests an urban/town centre location.
We are all willing to invest in good design, good landscaping, quality materials and wider community benefit.
We are legally constituted and we are currently evaluating a number of potential sites. Our aim is to be building within the next 2-3 years.
