A whole day of meetings, not usually a positive prospect but who can resist a day at the lovely Carisbrooke Priory with other like-minded co-housing people. It gave us a chance to talk more holistically and in-depth about some of the issues in a way that an evening meeting doesn’t allow.
We also had the excitement of guest speakers; a helpful talk from a local planner gave us some insights into the planning process and things which may be possible, and a local land agent talking through options available to us with them. We were also able to catch up with the grant officer
from the local council and to find out more about the interesting work of the priory and its history and grounds. It was a very productive and positive day and I am looking forward to the next one.
