Downsize to something bigger!
Join Still Green Cohousing, Milton Keynes for a future of independent living in a mutually supportive community of like-minded people aged 50+. If you are reading this, the chances are you’re looking for the kind of community or retirement housing where your need for independence is respected, where you live in your own self-contained dwelling but have the opportunity to socialise close at hand, with a “common house” within the community for shared meals, celebrations and recreational activities. We see it as a great way to grow older without being isolated and to live in a mutually supportive community without the institutional aspects so common in senior housing.

Still Green has been in discussion with TOWN, the developers of Marmalade Lane, for some time about the possibility of our Third Age cohousing community being part of the ‘Love Wolverton’ regeneration project in which they are already involved. This development will be in Wolverton, a Victorian railway town with a strong community spirit and well connected for transport, which now forms part of Milton Keynes. The site we are looking at is close to the railway station, 2 supermarkets, a Saturday market and the Grand Union Canal. It is within walking distance of the leisure centre which has a good size swimming pool. There are also allotments nearby.
Members of Still Green will be doing some more work with architects on a layout for our cohousing community and individual homes in the next few months and are optimistic that we might be able to go ahead with a scheme that could start construction next year. Our new homes could be ready late 2022/23!
Despite the limitations of the lock-down, we are keen to recruit new members. We will be holding a virtual briefing meeting for people interested in knowing more about our project on Saturday 20 June. If you are interested and would like learn more about what we are planning, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
