4. An alternative form of housing that is rapidly gaining popularity is cohousing. In fact, between 2012 and 2014 the number of new cohousing groups in the UK doubled. In this model, each household owns or rents its own individual home but there is also some element of shared space, which is owned collectively. Cohousing projects usually require residents to commit to a certain level of involvement in communal activities, for example preparing meals, undertaking maintenance or gardening work and attending meetings. This can create a sense of very close and active community, with the intention that everyone works for the common good.
