What we plan
We envisage a vibrant living environment that enables and encourages connection and neighbourliness, honours privacy, and supports biodiversity.
We are a group of diverse individuals and families who have been working on this project since late 2015. We are a not-for-profit group who are planning to create a neighbourhood we will live in. It will be an urban/suburban neighbourhood in New Plymouth with approximately 30 homes.
The Inspiring Earthsong Eco-neighbourhood in Ranui, Auckland
We aim to recreate many of the advantages of the traditional village such as enjoying both private and public spaces. We will have ownership of our own homes and share ownership of the communal spaces.
In addition to promoting social connection, the neighbourhood will be designed to the best practicable standards of environmental sustainability which will guide the layout and design of the buildings, choice of materials, landscaping and services.
We are currently searching for land to buy. As a group we will develop a plan for the whole property and for the houses and community spaces. All houses will be sold off the plans and 12 months after purchasing the land, we aim to have full membership so that construction can start immediately.
