Hothouse is a small cohousing group established in 2013 by a group of friends and neighbours, which is creating an outstanding, friendly and sustainable neighbourhood in Belper, Derbyshire, in partnership with Futures Housing Group. We have a track record in community building and improvement of neighbourhood green spaces, hold shared values and have a range of practical, creative and logistical skills. We support each other and are committed to inclusivity and modelling a lower carbon way of life. We are currently preparing to submit a planning application and building a website, to be launched in July 2020.
