Community Organisation

Key features of the community will include:

  • respect for each other and the environment
  • mutual support
  • clear financial structure including ownership, rental, tenure, cost of maintenance (buildings and land), utilities, etc.
  • regular meetings, both to define overall policy and sub-groups for day to day running, will be an important ongoing feature. These are likely to be frequent and extended in the early stages.
  • an effective decision-making process based on consensus rather than voting will be a core feature.
