Getting Involved



Having been granted planning westbaygroup3webpermission and working closely with our housing association, we are now getting ready to start the next stage of the project which will be to allocate houses. We are looking for people who want to join as members. We have got off to a fantastic start, and are keen for more people to join us.

The qualities we are looking for:

Getting on together
Attending meetings
Joining in the work
Attending training

There is a membership fee of £35, £10 of which buys shares in Bridport Cohousing Ltd. Members also contribute £10 per month towards running costs.

We invite potential new members to find out about cohousing and living in a cohousing neighbourhood. We hold regular open meetings to tell people about cohousing and our project (seeEvents page).

Find out more by contacting us here; or by looking at the Resources list for books and weekend courses.


Becoming a Supporter:

If you wish to support our project, but without becoming a member, we invite you to become a Friend.  Further details can be found here.


How we function:

To create our cohousing neighbourhood we are developing our growing group of potential residents, and working with our professional partners to design and develop our neighbourhood.

We hold regular meetings for all members, where we get to know one another and work to make the project happen.  Our two working groups focus on building the group of people and building the neighbourhood.  A management group co-ordinates the work and liaises with the project group.

We hold open meetings and events where interested people can find out about our project and see if they want to join us.
