July 2021

Had meetings with Sam, our West Midlands Urban Community Housing (wMUCH) consultant about our Site Finding Brief and our Outline Business Plan. Further refinements were recommended, and pursued. One of our colleagues also had some excellent ideas, from their experience working with a charity, about improvements to our Partnership Pitch. Work on incorporating these improvements is in progress.

One of us attended a webinar by Potton about gaining planning permission.

We had a couple of regular social / business Zoom meetings, and a little working bee to help one of our members who’s moved into a new home (while waiting for the CoHoWM project to come to fruition).

We started work on improving our social media presence. Check out https://www.facebook.com/CoHoWM/. We’re going to make an effort to be more active with our posts – while seeking not to overwhelm people!

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!
