We’ve been given a boost by Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner!

As mentioned just before Christmas, Daniel joined us for lunch on our workshops day. We were very grateful to him for taking time out to talk with us about our vision for a sustainable and shared community.

What’s more, he was full of support! After the meeting Daniel went on record, saying:

I’m inspired by the new Suvana cohousing project. They’ve got what it takes to be an exemplar in creating community-led housing in Cambridge, with their vision and passion for building affordable and sustainable homes where people support each other and minimise use of the world’s resources.

With Cambridge’s high costs and huge profit-led developments, we definitely need more homes like this where there’s direct social benefit, So I’m happy to offer them my support in their efforts and creative thinking to find opportunities for land and funding.

The MP has already been in touch with us since the meeting and has briefed Shadow Secretary of State for Housing, John Healey.

Daniel’s direct support adds to our strong sense of shared excitement!

If you’ve read our vision and like what you see, do consider joining as a member.
