Housing 21: a more inclusive model of cohousing?

Housing 21: a more inclusive model of cohousing? COVER

This report from the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research at Sheffield Hallam University presents findings from a one-year study of a Housing 21 cohousing project and explores this new model of cohousing that aims to deliver affordable, rented community-led homes to older people of modest financial means and from minoritized groups. 

Covering aspirations for the Lozells scheme, challenges and what worked well as well as comparisons with other schemes, conclusions and recommendations, this report is for practitioners who are interested in the lessons from this pioneering model, housing associations, NGOs, architects, community-led housing practitioners and communities interested in housing co-production.

The report is structured around the key questions and key lessons the researchers identified and discussed with stakeholders.
