After over 10 years of hard work by dozens of people, we got the green light in August 2021 to go ahead! Milton Keynes planning committee approved the Love Wolverton development, of which Still Green will be a part. The demolition of the derelict Agora shopping centre, the location of the development, has already started on the inside.
There’s plenty for us to be getting on with, including the details of the fixtures and fittings of our apartments, our shared indoor and outdoor spaces and how our rented properties will be managed. But we can be confident that the vision of those who founded Still Green is going to be realised at last.
An exciting new cohousing development for the over 50s in Milton Keynes.
Join us and be part of building a neighbourhood and a real community to call home.
Still Green is building a socially diverse and self-reliant neighbourhood of sustainable homes in a cohousing scheme for members aged 50 and upwards. Residents, both owner occupiers and tenants, will have their own separate dwellings and share common facilities including a common house where we can relax together and share some meals. We are planning to create a secure and supportive environment for the second half of life where we can be active and engaged with others when we want to and have peace and quiet in our own home when we don’t.
Still Green was founded by people who lived in Milton Keynes. Now we are a more diverse group made up of both local residents and people from far and wide.
We are moving to Wolverton!
After many years of trying to find a viable site for Still Green, we know now that the “Love Wolverton” regeneration scheme proposed by developers TOWN is going to become a reality.
We are delighted that our cohousing community will be situated in Wolverton which is an older area which predates much of Milton Keynes. It was established as a railway town and has its own distinct character and history.
Wolverton is located at the northern edge of Milton Keynes, between Stony Stratford and Newport Pagnell.
Our next Open Meeting for enquirers is at 11.30 on Saturday 21st May 2022. This will be followed by a ‘bring your own lunch’ and we will provide tea/coffee/squash.
This will be at a venue in Milton Keynes. If you are interested in attending, please email us at email@example.com
