Discover Cannock Mill Cohousing

Date: 29 September 2018 Time: 12:30-16:15
Location: Second Home Spitalfields, 68 Hanbury Street, London, E1 5JL Cost: Free to attend, booking essential

In this free event, which starts with a 'bring and share' lunch, members of Cannock Mill Cohousing will describe cohousing generally and the group’s experience in the pioneering wave of this relatively new (at least in the UK) way of living. The group began as a London-based cohousing group and decided to build in Colchester because it is large enough to have a wide range of amenities and activities, there is easy travel to London, land is affordable and, importantly, at Cannock Mill there is a 'wow factor' – something the group have fallen in love with.

The development will consist of a community of 23 homes designed and built to Passivhaus standards to achieve exceptionally low running costs, and sustainable comfort and health. The design team is being led by Anne Thorne, award-winning eco-architect, PHT member and a member of the cohousing group.
