The Shirle Hill Cohousing Group is looking for new members who may be interested in buying a unit in the old house, designing/developing it to meet their needs and helping shape the future of the project and its communal facilities.
“Shirle Hill is a group of people committed to building a co-operative community, sharing the resources of the site and working together. There are currently ten people living on site and two other members who will move in at a later stage. We are looking for new members to join our community and help develop the project. The site consists of a large old house which we are converting to flats and shared space and five new houses which are about to start construction, in an acre of land near Sheffield city centre.
All ten people living on site are currently in the old house but five households will move into their new build houses once these are complete. Three old house flats are already occupied and there will then be space vacant at the back of the house to create one or two new flats. This means that the old house will then consist of four or five flats plus the communal area.”
