Argyle Street Housing Co-operative opened in 1981 as a “fully mutual” co-op. We take decisions through members’ meetings, with voting rights for all tenants. These are held every month (and sometimes more frequently) in our community ‘hut’.
A number of smaller working groups implement the day to day management required, assisted by three part time paid workers.
Individual houses have a shared living room and kitchen and their own level of communal living, though we all share communal gardens and an allotment on our 3 acre site.
Our houses are in an urban environment in close proximity to the railway. They are for four, six and ten bedroom houses and we also have eight one bedroom flats.
With vacancies occurring fairly frequently we are always interested in applications from self-motivated people who are aware of the responsibilities and fun to be had from living co-operatively.
