The West End Housing Co-op is a small housing co-op of 12 houses and flats in the Westgate Hill area of Newcastle upon Tyne. Members of the co-op live in their own households but meet collectively once a month to organise repairs, rents, housing allocations and other matters of mutual concern. All members are tenants of the Co-op (and vice versa).
All the Co-operative’s properties are securely alarmed and have gas central heating.
The West End Housing Co-operative operates an Equal Opportunities Policy. Properties are allocated according to criteria that seek to meet both housing need and a willingness to share in the management of the co-op.
