December 2020

We had our final meeting to finish discussing the new MHOS model Rules. Some queries remain.

Our payment to join CCH was confirmed in December, so we’re now officially signed up. Now to book some consultancy time to clarify the MHOS model Rules.

Our usual social Zoom calls were held.

We had a very useful “health check” meeting with West Midlands Urban Community Homes (WMuch). The main things that need attention now are:

  • Carry on with the Business Plan document (project plan, financial plan, risk register).
  • Work up a “case” document to explain to stakeholders (council, financial, etc.) why we are worthy of their support.
  • Work up a “community homes” document to outline the type of buildings we will need, to fit onto a site, and to ensure that we meet likely council requirements for site density.

One of us drew up a useful potential floor plan for one of the smaller one-bedroom units – 40 sqm.

Cohousing West Midlands is (surprise) a cohousing project for the West Midlands! Cohousing is where everyone has their own front door, but there's also a community house for weekly shared meals and activities, and other shared spaces. More than a Housing Association, and less than a co-op!
