What is cohousing?

Cohousing is a type of housing development or neighbourhood.  In cohousing schemes, shared facilities, including communal, social spaces and generous outdoor spaces, are provided alongside high-quality individual homes.

Unlike off-the-shelf homes from typical developers, cohousing neighbourhoods are usually delivered through a partnership between a community and a design-and-deliver team.  By allowing individuals and community groups to be involved in the design process and/or construction of their homes (e.g. selfbuild) development costs can be reduced as well as providing future homeowners with control, pride, and an increased sense of ownership of their future home and neighbourhood.
