Island CoHousing was established in 2018 to plan and build a co-housing development on the Isle of Wight. The project aims to deliver affordable, sustainable homes in a community-focused development consisting of around 20 homes and a range of shared common facilities. It aims to showcase an alternative form of delivery of new homes and a proactive approach to “building in community”. The development will be based around 7 core values:
Communal & Sociable
It will help address a significant shortfall in house building on the Isle of Wight, and a large affordability gap between household incomes and market house prices.
