Still Green is a membership organisation that is planning two co-housing communities, one here in Milton Keynes and the other in Bicester. Our focus is on increasing the housing options available to women and men aged 50 plus, singles and couples. Our members wish to live as sustainably as possible, in lifetime homes, and in a mutually-supportive way.
Residents of co-housing schemes have individual flats or houses but share some facilities; typically a common house where visitors can stay and meals can be shared, as well as communal gardens, equipment and storage spaces. Co-housing is designed ‘with us not for us’, and managed by us. It offers the autonomy and privacy of your own home with the mutual support offered through a degree of collaborative living.
Still Green hopes to provide a mix of homes for purchase and rent, including a proportion of affordable homes. We would expect there to be between 15 and 30 units in each community.
