Who are we?

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
  • Low-impact
  • Affordable
  • Valuing leisure
  • Sharing resources
  • Co-operative
  • Inclusive

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.
