We’re a housing cooperative based in Machynlleth, Mid-Wales. We formed in June 2012, registered mutual 31642R.
We currently have two houses in town, one that we own and one that we lease, with a total of 10 members, though this changes from time to time. If you’re interested in joining us, have a look at the Join us page to see if we’re currently looking for new members.
Follow us on Instagram to keep up to date with what veggie food we’re eating.
What is a housing co-op?
A housing co-op is similar to a housing association, but it is managed (either entirely, or mainly) by its tenants. A housing co-op is, on one level, a group of people who have control over their own housing, without actually owning it personally.
In our housing co-op, members tend to live communally (e.g. we buy food as a house, take it in turns to cook and eat together when we can) and we each have a responsibility to contribute to the running of the co-op. We have a secretary, a treasurer, a maintenance co-ordinator and a food monitor. We have meetings to make decisions about how we run the house.
