Eco housing for eyesore land

Story by Nico Hall

A small group of people are interested in developing and eco-friendly co-housing community on the land on the corner of Abbeyfield Road and Holtwood Road. The development of the land, which has yet to be acquired, would include sympathetic communal spaces for sharing resources, social activities and gardens, as well as the individual dwellings for the co-housing members.

The land was previously the yard of Aaron White (Demolition & Reclamation) Ltd. and is on the market with conditional planning permission for 20 houses. If you are interested in finding out more or getting involved by joining or supporting the group in other ways, please email
