Worcester Council approves UK's first iKozie micro-homes

iKozie Worcester

Worcester City Council has given planning approval for the country’s first iKozie micro-home community on a former brownfield site in the city centre.

The micro-home concept was launched by The Homeless Foundation in 2017 and the charity, of which iKozie founder and director Kieran O’Donnell is a trustee, believes it can be rolled out nationwide as “an innovative housing solution” for the estimated 4,750 people sleeping rough nightly in England.

City councillors backed plans for 16 single-person iKozie homes to be built on a former brownfield site in the city centre, which iKozie director Kieran O’Donnell believes could be a template and inspiration for similar housing solutions across the country.
