We start the build!

Chapeltown residents are building 29 new affordable, low-energy homes with shared facilities and gardens and a diverse, intentional cohousing community grown from the local area.

  • Design homes and neighbourhood
  • Achieve planning permission
  • Viable £5.3m business plan
  • Purchase site
  • Start the build

This is community-led housing in action. At least two-thirds of the residents will come from Chapeltown. We are also working hard to make sure that the group reflects the diversity of the local area in terms of age, ethnicity and wealth.

We’re now looking for community-minded local people to fill our last few homes. If you’re up for putting in the work to make this project a success, get in touch.

Shared Ownership homes available

We currently have the following Shared Ownership homes available for people who meet our membership criteria.

We have a number of Prospective Members already interested in some of these homes – but, as yet, we have not allocated them.

Please note that prices and rents may change following revaluation a few months before we move in. There is also a monthly income-related “Common House Contribution” to cover the costs of the shared facilities.

See this page for Rented homes.

Decision log

First attempt. Will need to be able to produce hard copy version.

General Meeting 10/1/19

Governance: continue for now with fortnightly Hub meetings 6.30pm Thursdays at 39 Grange Avenue. But concerns about excluding those who can’t do this time and about concentrating too much power in a small group of people. Review in 2 months (March 2019).

Decision log: Hub group to maintain this.
