Cohousing Woodside met again on Sunday March 17 and welcomed around a dozen visitors who came for the first time to enquire into the project and have supper with us.
In an informal get-together it became clear that most were looking both to downsize and to find congenial neighbours and a sense of community. A number said that this would be their final move and last home if they join us.
We went through large scale plans of the site, explained the main features of Passivhaus standards, and discussed some of the planning issues that have yet to be resolved. We ourselves are hoping to have some more certainty on valuations within the next week, as prices are, understandably, a key concern.
