We are a group of local people working to create an affordable cohousing neighbourhood in Bridport and now have all the legal and contractual agrrements in place to start work on building our cohousing neighbourhood in March 2020.
This will be the largest, all affordable cohousing scheme in the UK and will provide a mixed tenure intergenerational neighbourhood of eco homes (1 bed flats and 2,3,and 4 bed houses) for 53 households.26 of the homes will be for social rent through our partner housing association and 27 for leasehold purchase (half of these will be for sale at 80% of market value and half through Help to Buy South from 25% – 75% of market value) – for details visit our website at www.bchomes.org.uk
We anticipate starting the groundworks in March 2020 and building the homes and common house using timber frame construction, by late Summer 2021.
The first step towards owning or renting one of these beautiful architect designed homes, situated on the northwest edge of Bridport and surrounded by delightful Dorset countryside, is to look at what the benefits of living in cohousing might mean for you and to become a member of the CLT. We hold regular events for people who may be curious to learn about living in a neighbourhood where it is made easy for families and individuals to come together to enjoy shared activities like eating together and community gardening, while at the same time enjoying their own personal space, whenever they need it, and private self contained accommodation.
