We are an intergenerational cohousing community that encourages social interaction and is built on ecological values. We provide and maintain homes and community facilities alongside workshop/office space. We seek to enable sustainable travel to central Lancaster so that residents have easy access to amenities that are not available in Halton village.
Our community is built on ecological values with new buildings achieving Passivhaus standard and meeting the requirements of Code for Sustainable Homes Level Six. They are designed to facilitate spontaneous socialisation supporting a full neighbourly community. The development comprises properties that are of interest to a range of household sizes and incomes.
The project will be a cutting edge example of sustainable design and living. It will act as a catalyst and inspiration for significant improvements in the sustainability of new development, and will have close links to Halton and the wider community.
