Low carbon eco workspace with a community feel – opening summer 2013
Halton Mill is a new environmentally friendly and ethical business hub opening near Lancaster in summer 2013. Based in a historical industrial building on the banks of the River Lune, we offer a vibrant and inspiring environment in which small businesses, social enterprises, community based organisations, artists, craftspeople, and freelancers can flourish. We aim to minimise the environmental impact of our working activities and to encourage the sharing of resources, skills, opportunities, ideas and facilities.
Halton Mill is owned by Lancaster Cohousing, a pioneering eco community which has recently opened next to the Mill. Green Elephant, a not for profit cooperative, will manage the Mill. As well as providing affordable managed workspace in offices, workshops and studios, we will support our tenants by providing business support and advice, networking opportunities and by promoting their work. Tenants will automatically become members of the cooperative and so have the opportunity to influence the running of Halton Mill.

We are currently looking for expressions of interest from individuals or organisations aspiring to run their enterprise in an ethical and environmentally friendly way who may want to become tenants in the Mill. We are particularly keen to encourage small local enterprises or individuals wanting to take the next step from working at home. Nearly half the units are already reserved.
