Better Living by Design

What community facilities, assets or services will be in SUV communities?

Each community will differ in size and location so the types of common facilities will differ as well, however each one will include at least five of these options:

  • Community Halls and Dining area
  • Pool
  • Playground
  • Community Library
  • Community Kitchen, to commercial standard.
  • Workshop
  • Guest rooms for visitors or travellers, friends and family
  • Community garden
  • Food coop
  • Retail facilities such as a cafĂ©
  • Spaces for residents to rent for their small businesses
  • Online community portal (email list and profile system for event notifications etc)
  • Extra storage space for rent
  • Car share system
  • Shared air conditioning/heating systems
  • Shared renewable power e.g. solar photovoltaics

Having such extra space e.g. large kitchen in the community centre and guest rooms means individual homes don't have to be as big. For example, if you wanted to host a dinner party, you could just use the community kitchen and hall; or if a relative or friend came to visit, they could just stay in the guest room (bed and breakfast style accommodation for short term occasional guests). By having one less bedroom in a large house/apartment, residents could save hundreds of dollars per week.
