Shangrileeds

Forming Community

Shangrileeds is a co-housing project based in Leeds which aims to build (within 4 miles of the city centre) a member-led housing neighbourhood, maximising social interaction between its residents whilst making a positive contribution to its surrounding community. We aim to build a community of 10 to 20 homes (from 1 bed flats up to 4 bed houses) and the project will include a ‘co-house’ which will include features for residents such as laundry, shared kitchen and meeting space, and will offer facilities for the local community.

Summerhill Housing Co-operative

Summerhill Housing Co-operative is made up of two shared houses with 6 bedrooms each, both of which are on a beautiful street in central Newcastle.

Fireside Housing Co-op

Fireside has a row of four mid-terrace Victorian houses in Burngreave in Sheffield. We’ve knocked our four long and skinny gardens into one, so there’s plenty of room for us to play, grow organic veg, have bonfires and parties. The gardens back onto a Victorian cemetery so there’s lots of green space and wildlife around even though we’re in an inner-city area. There’s also an adventure playground at the end of the road.

Tangram Housing Co-op

Tangram is a registered Housing Co-operative. We have 39 units of accommodation, all in or near Bank Side Street in Harehills, Leeds. They range from studio flats through to four-bedroom family houses.
Our application process can be lengthy, and it may be some time before a vacancy arises. We are probably most suitable for people already in the Leeds area.
We are a Registered Social Landlord regulated by the Homes & Communities Agency. This means that any vacancies are allocated on the basis of housing need.

Cornerstone Housing Co-operative

Cornerstone is not so much a community as a collective of people who share the running of a housing co-op, but who have different political perspectives and focuses for their daily lives. Cornerstone has two large Victorian houses in Chapeltown, a culturally diverse part of inner-city Leeds. Both houses need a lot of ongoing maintenance, and have large gardens front and back, which we variously hang out in, tend or leave wild, attracting wildlife and producing some food (herbs, fruit and veg).
