Welcome to ShangriLeeds

ShangriLeeds is a group of people aspiring to create a small urban co-housing community in Leeds.  Leeds already has two flourishing co-housing communities, LILAC and ChaCo, and we are fortunate to be able to seek their guidance and support.

LILAC (Low Impact Living Affordable Community) was established in Bramley in 2012 and ChaCo is developing a site in Chapeltown.

After years of searching for a site, in January 2019 Leeds City Council gave us first refusal to bid for a potential site.  The site has a relatively central but ‘green’ location, conveniently situated between Woodhouse and Little London, not far from the city centre, Leeds University, and the Woodhouse Ridge – which provides access to Meanwood Park through green corridors.

We now have six months to prepare a feasibility study for the co-housing development of our dreams on the site!  Our priority now is to recruit more future neighbours to share the dream with as well as connecting with local people to find out how our development can make a positive contribution to the area.
