Sussex Cohousing

Sussex Cohousing is a group that aims to develop a cohousing project in or near Brighton, where most of us are based.

Cohousing communities are created and run by their residents. Each household has a self-contained home and the community shares some resources and activities. The site, social activities and governance are all designed to balance privacy with beneficial social interaction.

We envisage a life-enhancing community with the following characteristics:

  • 15-35 households (each with their own front door)

  • a mix of flats, small houses and family houses

  • collaboratively managed by the residents

  • mixed tenure (such as rental / shared ownership / ownership – or equivalent)

  • shared resources including a common house for meeting, eating and pastimes

  • low environmental impact in construction, energy use and transport

  • of benefit to the local community

  • as accessible and affordable as is feasible
