A new Co-housing project in West Hobart

Hobart EcoVillage Inc (HEV) will be holding a meeting, next Saturday 7 June at 2pm, to explore the possibility of establishing a co-housing community at 168 Warwick St, West Hobart. The aim of the meeting is to explain the potential of the site and to gauge the level of interest in exploring a possible development.

HEV have been looking at a number of potential sites to establish an ecovillage in Hobart. You can read more about our group and our site requirements in the Info Pack available on our public Google Drive folder.

We are particularly excited by the potential for a high density co-housing community (at least 8 - 10 dwellings & a common house) in central Hobart, as is demonstrated by the Christie Walk development in Adelaide. 168 Warwick Street is within walking distance of the city and is close to public transport. It has a gently sloping northerly aspect with good sun access and views. It is an ideal site for an inspirational, state of the art, sustainable eco-village, and we would like to invite you to be a part of it!

The meeting next Saturday is the very beginning of this process. Anyone who might be interested in participating or finding out more about the project is extremely welcome.

Following the meeting there will be a potluck shared meal at 6pm. You are welcome to join us for that if you want to find out more about Hobart EcoVillage and co-housing in general.

If you are interested in either the Warwick St meeting or the potluck dinner please contact Sarah Boyle at sarahboyle111@gmail.com or phone 0427 680 746 to RSVP and get details of the meeting location. 

For other queries about the possible development contact Jack Gilding on   jack.gilding@gilding.com or 0407 486 651. 

And please pass this message onto others that you think may be interested.
