We are keen to encourage sustainable business enterprises from within the cohousing project. Their nature will depend on having people committed to running them and making them a success.
One example would be a smallholding business run by a member or a co-operative of members. There would need to be sufficient suitable land to make this possible.
Others could include, bed and breakfast, a venue for events, pottery, bakery and the provision of art and craft workshops and a gallery for the local community. We could also include therapies such as reflexology or tai-chi.
As with the rest of our involvement with the wider community we will ensure these enterprises complement other businesses in the area rather than compete with them.
