Cohousing Potential in Northern Ireland | Wednesday 28 October, 7-9pm

The UK’s leading expert on Cohousing, Stephen Hill (Chair UK Cohousing Network), is visiting Belfast on Wed 28th Oct and will be discussing NI’s potential for Cohousing.

WHAT IS COHOUSING?
Cohousing is a type of intentional, collaborative housing in which residents actively participate in the design and operation of their neighbourhoods. Cohousing provides the privacy we are accustomed to within the community we seek.

Cohousing residents consciously commit to living as a community. The neighbourhood’s physical design encourages both individual space and social contact. Private homes contain all the features of conventional homes, but residents also have access to extensive common facilities such as open space, courtyards, a playground, and a common house.

1% of Denmark’s population live in Cohousing developments and there are over 70 Cohousing groups in Great Britain, but none currently in Northern Ireland.

This event will be of interest to architects, housing professionals and developers, planning officials, councillors, and individuals interested in living together in a more co-operative and environmentally
responsible way.
