Cohousing Woodside will be a community of 30 households where at least one occupant per household is aged 55 years and over. The new-build homes in Muswell Hill,North London, (estimated completion date May 2017) will be owned on 999 year leases (no rentals). Our Development Plan may be seen on our website. There will be a common house and the opportunity to join in shared activities, including meals and gardening. Members will manage the common facilities, and all residents are invited to take part in the life of the community.
We are still getting to know each other and sorting out our hopes and expectations in ‘signing up to be neighbourly’. Our working groups are developing the Common House, policies for group living, car sharing arrangements and other aspects of group life. New members are welcome and an ‘early-bird’ discount applies. We hold monthly meetings locally with visitor Q & A sessions.
