Bridport December Update

A lot has happened for Bridport cohousing group since the summer. We presented our plans to the planners in August, but as we had previously had extensive dialogue with them, our application held no surprises. We are hopeful for a response to our application by 17th December, but the indications are that, because of the pressure on the section caused by funding cuts, it could be February before we hear.

Cohousing Woodside December Update

Burgeoning interest in this scheme over recent months has meant that we have already reached a critical mass of two-thirds of our eventual prospective buyers. Nowadays, our own publicity seems to be not quite so vital, as we are finding that more and more people who have cottoned on to the term 'cohousing' proceed to google it to find where it is being done in London. So demand seems to be pretty high and our meetings are well attended by keen, interested people looking for community.

OWCH members are set full steam ahead to move in by early 2016 to 25 flats in High Barnet.  At our winter party on Dec 14, newcomers were able to see a model of the scheme (see attached), made by one of our members who has worked in the National Theatre scenery department for years.
