The Cohousing Company received planning permission in June 2005 for the first CoFlats community. CoFlats is similar to Cohousing but it’s just flats. Stroud Coflats has a shared car, an on-site 2KW wind turbine, super-insulation and re-uses an old chapel in the Town Centre.

There is a common house, two garden areas, 20 secure bicycle lockups, 14 flats and studios.

The related Cohousing Company built the first new-build cohousing community in the UK in Stroud (see Springhill Cohousing entry). And the 3rd Cohousing Community in Stroud. CoFlats Sladbrook.

The principles of Cohousing are that decisions are made by consensus, the site is pedestrianised, the common house is used for shared meals and is a communal extension to residents’ private living rooms.
Cohousing is the future. Communal when we want it and privacy when we want it.
