Development in Social Enterprise have gained an ‘intention to lease’ on a Council owned light industrial estate just outside of Solihull.

We are currently in the consultation phase where we will shortly release a survey for members of the public to participate in. We hope that organisations and entrepreneurs will share our vision in creating a sustainable work space for community enterprises to grow.

The community enterprise hub is named Woodside, as it is situated on Woodside Industrial Estate between Kingshurst and Babs Mill Park. The site is currently owned by Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council and has tenants; Pinnacle Housing Ltd, occupying 3 of the units.

This is an exciting venture for Development in Social Enterprise and we are keen to get things moving through the consultation stage and into the implementation stage.

Our vision is to build a modern facility to support self employed people, community enterprises and charities. By creating Woodside, it will give community busiensses the space to grow, support new start up organisations and create jobs for local people.
