Out of Town (Brighton)
Out of Town
We are a housing co-op based in Brighton (as our name would suggest, on the edges of town...), where we own one large property housing 9 people (plus dog, guinea pigs, rat, and chickens) and lease two smaller properties on the same street on the other side of town housing another 8 people plus additional dog and cat.
We are working towards being able to buy another house or houses for the residents of the two smaller properties when the lease with the housing association expires in 2017.
In the meantime we have recently installed solar water heating in the larger house and are now adding a glass roof light thingy to create an additional liveable room. And more plans are in the pipeline...
We have a small number of unhoused members and always welcome more but we can offer no guarantee of when a vacancy in the co-op might come up. If you are interested in joining Out Of Town you can email us at the address below.
