Here comes a cordial invitation to our next drop-in session, Saturday 10th September, 10.15- 11.15am, in the Cafe of the Royal Concert Hall.
We have not been able to catch up with posting on our website here for quite a few weeks! So much has been happening and there are as usual only ever a few hands at any time free to process everything, especially now over the summer period. Quick updates:
- date and venue for forthcoming Scottish CoHousing Cooperators event has changed from the 8th November at the Light House to the 22nd November at the Glasgow City Chambers. More details to come soon via Daniel Mackendry from A&DS (Architecture and Design Scotland). This is a by invitation only event, for people already active in either Cohousing or other forms of community led housing with an interest in Cohousing. The outcome of the event is hoped to pave the way to easier routes for getting CoHousing off the ground in Scotland. If you wish to be invited, please email <pencoho4u @ gmail.com > to be referred to Daniel.
- middle of August we had a great time visiting the award winning Castle Rock Edinvar over 60s independent living housing development Fortune Place in Edinburgh. Hopefully you find a wee report on this inspirational visit here on our website soon.
- one of our members visited Scotland’s first and so far only exisiting CoHousing project, East Whins, near Findhorn, end of July. Report still forthcoming from there too.
- the architectural plans are being redesigned for our St Andrews Drive development to bring the costs down and more people in. Come and see us next Saturday the 10th September, from 10.15am – 11.15am (usually we are still there at 12pm) to find out more. We had a very lively drop in last month in the Tramway, and felt so energised afterwards. Also because we have learned from two folks who came along that they are planning another CoHousing development in the Dear Green Place of Glasgow, one that aims to do self build. It brings us hope for Scotland to make a breakthrough for CoHousing soon.
Here some pictures for sneaky preview of reports to come:
