LILAC means Low Impact Living Affordable Community.
We are the UK's first affordable ecological cohousing project: a community of 20 households and a common house, based in Bramley, West Leeds.
We are a pioneering and award winning project (see our awards section):
The aim of LILAC is to:
Reduce our impact on the environment (by using sustainable materials and reducing energy consumption)
Respond to the housing crisis (by providing permanently affordable housing)
Build a beautiful, safe neighbourhood which maximises social interaction between its residents and gives them direct power over how their neighbourhood is run
Make a positive contribution to the surrounding community.
