Forming Formed: 2008

Delhi village is a green co-housing project forming in Whanganui, New Zealand.
Itís an opportunity to live in a village atmosphere, close to friends on shared land, but independent in your own house and section.
The aim is to create a community thatís more environmentally sustainable, but with enough freedom to pursue this goal in your own way.
As at January 2013 full site developments have taken place and we are now seeking official subdivision titles from local council requesting 10 sections of aprox 800m2 each. Including common land our property is 12.8 hectares. There are currently 9 families and we are always happy to hear from people who may be interested in living here in the future.
The land is on the fringe of Whanganui, an arty, ragged, interesting provincial town of 40,000.
Building sites in the village are clustered together, with the rest of the land available for orchards, gardens, growing firewood and grazing sheep and chickens. The steepest land will be re-clad in native forest.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
