Lancaster Cohousing

Forgebank Walk, Halton, nr Lancaster, LA2 6FD


The Lancaster Cohousing project provides residents with private homes, community facilities, workshop/office space and shared outdoor space close to Lancaster and built on ecological values.

Forgebank is a 2.5 ha eco-residential development in a beautiful rural setting alongside the River Lune on the edge of the village of Halton. The south facing slope overlooking the River Lune is ideal for the zero-carbon homes and there is a lot of green space for everyone to enjoy. 

Heron Bank
Heron Bank is a terrace of six three-bedroom houses at the Western side of the main site. They are built to the same design and passivhaus standard as the other downstairs living three-bedroom homes in the project.  The difference is that on Heron Bank the houses are freehold rather than leasehold, and each has a private garden and parking space. Future residents of Heron Bank will have an option whether or not to opt in to using the common facilities and areas.

The Mill
The existing mill building provides an opportunity for managed work and office space which is attractive to environmental businesses.
