A representative of our group sat on the panel at the Custom-build and Cohousing Summit, a conference in London on how group participation could help to make for better kinds of housing and more cohesive neighbourhoods. There were great presentations from Ted Stevens of the National Self Build Association, Stephen Hill of C2O Future Planners, Chris Brown of Igloo Regeneration Fund and several others including James Ratcliff of the deputy mayor of London’s office.
The event was chaired by Angela Brady, the President of the RIBA, who is a great enthusiast and advocate for cohousing.
Hanover is holding another exhibition to get some feedback about its plans for the site. Come and have a look at the plans, drawings and models, and have your say.
The exhibition is open on Friday 28th September from 3-8pm, and again on Saturday 29th from 10am until 3pm. It’s an opportunity to meet members of our Cohousing Group too, and find out more about cohousing and the form that our development will take.
The Cohousing Woodside project now has its own website/blog! We are no longer hidden within the page structure of NLSHP.org but standing proudly on our own internet feet.
