People forming a Group

Here is just one message on our noticeboard intended for individuals, small handfuls of individuals or families that would like to find others to get something going. To see the rest click here. People are likely to be at a very early stage and so not big enough or thought-through enough to go into our Forming Groups section. We would always urge people to consider whether they really want to "reinvent the wheel" all over again. Existing communities are often looking for new members (take a look here) and there are usually several forming groups who've already got some way down the line here.
If you're wanting to place a message or reply to one that's already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click "Your account" then the Edit tab). We reserve the right to move the message to another category if it seems more appropriate.

Forming cohousing communities in London, Bristol, and Exeter

We are currently in the process of helping community groups interested in building cohousing schemes in London, Bristol, and Exeter form. We (KIN) are a design-led, architecture and development practice. Our objective is to deliver the world’s most environmentally and socially sustainable homes: creating a beautiful, healthy, sustainable, carbon-free built environment for everyone. Having lived and worked in community, we know it can be an overwhelming process to, literally, build a community. Our aim is to bring people together, who are looking for a better way to get the homes that want. We have the expertise and support needed to make things happen, be that design, finance, securing land or providing general advice. NB: If there is sufficient interest in other cities/areas, then we are happy to explore those too. You can sign up to express your interest at If you already have a group of people together, or have a particular project or site you want to discuss, please do get in touch at You can also connect on Facebook at
