  • Be aged 16 or over.
  • Agree to our five primary principles listed below, and explained in detail here.
    1. Cohousing is co-designed with intentional communities
    2. Cohousing includes both the provision of private and common facilities providing a balance between privacy and communities
    3. The size and scale of cohousing is appropriate to support community dynamics for easy informal communal contact; this is usually between 10-40 households
    4. Cohousing embeds collective resident control and stewardship into its legal form and decision making
    5. Cohousing communities are inclusive and part of the wider community

To be approved as a member you must:

  • Pay your membership subscription.
  • Have your membership approved by the UK Cohousing Board Directors (this is done retrospectively at each board meeting).
