Hello fellow travellers, =20 =20 Here in Edinburgh (Scotland) we are working on coming up with a=20 financial model that will help us provide not only private houses but=20 houses to rent for those on low income.=20 =20 There are one or two models (fully mutual cooperatives, etc.) but they=20 don't exactly meet our needs.=20 =20 The other problem we are anticipating is that since this is a new model=20 of housing in the UK, lending institutions might be leery of working=20 with us.=20 =20 With this in mind, we are turning to our European economic partners (in=20 the national sense). With the European Union in full swing, there seems=20 no barrier to contacting Danish, Dutch or German banks/credit unions,=20 what have you, who will have more exposure to the co-housing type model=20 -- especially Danish banks, for obvious reasons!=20 =20 If anyone has one or more contacts with Danish groups especially, or=20 other European groups, or know of any European lending institutions=20 (Danish or otherwise) with whom we could get in touch, please let me=20 know. Or if any other Europeans are monitoring this list, I would be=20 anxious to get in touch.=20 =20 Thanks in advance=20 =20 Paul Milne=20 Cohousing 2000, where we are trying to come up with a viable financial=20 model that incorporates affordability, so that we can start looking at=20 sites! There is one we have seen that would be perfect, but we don't=20 really have the wherewithal yet to approach the seller.=20 =20 -------------------------------------------=20 http://corrieneuchin.mhie.ac.uk/~Paul_Milne/=20 "I learn by going where I have to go."=20 --Theodore Roethke=20
