Redwing Housing Co-operative Limited is a Fully Mutual Housing Co-operative, registered on 5th December 2019.
which will provide rented live-work studio accommodation for its members.
What is a Fully Mutual Housing Co-op?
- Fully mutual housing co-ops are those where all members are tenants, and all tenants are members, where all investments made by members are non-transferable and non-withdrawable. This means that all assets are in common ownership and individuals are not simply using the co-op as a form of personal investment. Redwing Housing Cooperative property will remain in common ownership from generation to generation.
Our core members are currently working on developing our business plan and searching for a site in West Cornwall for the co-operative's first property.
We are looking for a site in West Cornwall where the co-operative can grow its own food, with land that can be set aside for re-wilding. Redwing Contemporary Art CIC will collaborate with Redwing Housing co-operative to manage a community space with plant-based cafe, exhibition, rehearsal and event space which will also be available to the wider community.
What are our plans?
- Our co-operative will provide affordable private accommodation with shared communal space for its members. Utility costs will be shared to foster a sense of community and co-operation while saving money and carbon footprints.
- Plant-based meals, work and leisure activities will be shared, encouraging tenants to feel less isolated, part of a healthy community and to lower carbon emissions.
- Shared equipment and transport will reduce costs and tenants' ecological footprints.
