Bunker’s goal is to build high-quality homes for low-income people.
Bunker Housing Co-operative Ltd was set up in 2014 after years of trying to find affordable housing in Brighton & Hove. Bunker started with two families and now has a membership of 10 adults plus children. They also have a waiting list of people who would like to join. Members need to comply with Bunker’s Allocations and Eligibility Policy which is in line with Brighton & Hove City Council’s housing allocations policy and procedure for housing nominations. This means that when people are applying to join the co-operative there are restrictions on how much household income and savings members can have as well as a requirement for members to have lived in the city for at least 5 years.
Bunker’s membership is made up of low-income people, living in private rented accommodation. They are committed to building low-cost homes using the most economic and eco-friendly methods available to them. Bunker completed their first two homes and families moved in June 2020. They are currently working on their next 15 homes across 4 different sites in Brighton & Hove.
