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.

Maureen Jones,
Prospective Resident

I’ve spent most of my life here in Chapeltown and I love this place. It’s been home for my grandmother, mother, me, my children and grandchildren.

Cohousing is going to be a great way to keep communication alive across the generations to the benefit of all of us, young and old.

Get in touch!
