Dear Peter,
Searching for ways to allow local people to invest in ethical cohousing, a form of cohousing that addresses housing inequality, I’m interested in P2P investment and Open Credit Networking that would allow private housing equity to be released into building affordable and sustainable cohousing dwellings.
I’ve just watched this video by Thomas Greco and it inspires me to think that a local cohousing project could be funded, at least in part, by local social investors especially in here in the SE where housing equity values, aka economic rents, are going through the roof. The video is embedded in his Beyond Money website
Thmas Greco is also an advisor to the Open Credit Network team. One of the co-founders is Dave Darby who also co-founded Low Impact.org and has a keen personal interest in setting up a cohousing scheme. 
A local ethical cohousing initiative addressing housing inequality by redistributing the accumulation of economic rent by property-owning downsizers might jinx the system 😃 Who knows!
Best wishes, Rob.
