My name's Joe, I'm 39 and I'm an education worker at an environmental charity, part-time teacher and gardener.
When did you become a member of Lilac?
What size property will you be living in?
A ground floor, one bedroom flat with a small garden.
Why do you want to live in Lilac?
I want to live in a home that will be cheap to run, where I'll know my neighbours, has somewhere to grow some fruit & veg, and that enables me to live an eco-friendly lifestyle.
What do you think the best thing about living in Lilac will be?
Living in a proper neighbourhood where you can help each other out, socialise when you feel like it, but still have a private home.
Any other comments?
Another really important thing about LILAC for me is that it is affordable. It will allow me to have a form of home ownership and build up equity instead of throwing money away on rent, while keeping the freedom to choose what I do for a living based on something other than just how much it pays. It's a great way of taking more control of our own lives.
