Communal facilities feature in Danish-style 'co-housing'

  • Comment

The UK's first 'co-housing' scheme, where home owners have access to communal facilities including kitchens, dining areas and gardens, has been submitted for planning approval by Architype.

Common in Denmark, where co-housing is encouraged as part of a national housing policy, the scheme for 34 homes in Stroud, Gloucester, will also incorporate a number of sustainable features including recycled newspaper insulation, organic paints and stains and south-facing conservatories.

Annual heating bills are expected to be less than £50 a year.
