South West England

Cirencester Cohousing

Forming Community

A new housing development on a 1.2 hectare site. 32 self contained homes combining houses and apartments with people of all ages, abilities, incomes and diverse backgrounds.

We will have a central pedestrian street for safe play and community activities, an access road and parking outside the housing and a common house at the heart of the community.

Our common house will have shared facilities for cooking, eating together, entertainment, creative activities and socialising. There will be shared gardens for play and for growing produce.

Friendship Cohousing

Forming Community

We are in the process of purchasing South Treveneague Farm and transforming it into the Friendship Cohousing Community. (It is near Friendship Woods.)

It will make a perfect place to live as the climate crisis develops. It is off the beaten track but not far from public transport links and Penzance; sheltered and secluded but near lovely walks with views; and close to the sea on both the south and north coasts of Cornwall.

Project Q

Forming Community

Project Q is an emerging cohousing project; nothing is fixed at this stage other than: geographical area will be Southwest England (probably Cornwall); type of property will be farmstead/small country estate with land; an intention to align with the Quaker principles of truth, peace, equality and simplicity. Other aspects of the community are up for discussion and debate. A key aim is to help and support people through the climate and biodiversity crisis.
