Vivarium has a site for its Pilot Project at last.
Campion Homes have negotiated the purchase of Trynmuir which lies between Cupar, a market town, and Cuparmuir, a hamlet.

As children leave home and retirement looms the conversation turns more and more around what to do with our lives. Leaving aside becoming a globally recognised artist or my partner becoming a selflessly dedicated leader of worthy causes, the first realistic thought is moving abroad. On a dreary London day, La Provence’s blue sky is attractive. It is an excellent subject of day dreaming while commuting but the vision of oneself, 35 years later, victim of an unfavourable exchange rate, unable to pay health insurance bills, in a house we cannot sell, strikes me as a nightmare scenario.

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.
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.
