Mulberry Housing Co-op

Mulberry co-op

Mulberry Housing Co-op was the first Coin Street housing co-operative, completed in 1988.

Properties were let to local people in housing need nominated by Lambeth and Southwark Council in early 1988. After a period of training, the residents took control of Mulberry, which began to function as an independent fully mutual co-operative in the early 1990s.

Mulberry Housing Co-op has contractual tenancies and has a 100% nominations agreement with the London Boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark; 50% of vacancies are offered on an alternate basis to both local authorities.
