Bonny Downs Cohousing
A local charity founded by a Baptist church seeking to redevelop their church hall to provide a bespoke space for community activities and affordable housing for those in need.
Bonny Downs Church owns a small, old church building which is used for their weekly Foodbank and community meal, winter night shelter, and skills courses.
Working in collaboration with the New Way project, their vision is to demolish this building and build an ‘urban abbey’ that will combine intentional community housing with a wider community space on the ground floor that would be used for services for people who are homeless, vulnerably housed or experiencing food poverty.
How we’re helping:
We have helped them complete an initial feasibility study on the site, and have recently supported them to appoint Panter Hudspith as architects to take the project to RIBA stage 2.
