Over the past year the council had worked closely with Business Development Services and Business Enterprise Agency Units to deliver a sustainable enterprise service.

From surveys of home based businesses and through talking to other small to medium sized enterprises the council recognised a demand for flexible office space, of good quality that could be used by businesses looking to expand gradually without incurring too much risk.

”At Braintree District Council we want to help small businesses to flourish and grow as we recognise they are the core of our local economy,” she added.

“Our district needs modern, well-connected business premises like this to stimulate this growth and so I am delighted to be opening the Skyline Business Centre today. I’m sure it will be much in demand and I wish the venture every success.”
