The Trust is in the process of delivering an exciting new project to West Harris: the Community Enterprise Centre Project, at Pairc Niseaboist, Horgabost. The project will help to reinvigorate the West Harris community via the provision of new business, tourism, social and housing opportunities. This signature development will create a community hub and reflect the aspirations of West Harris for a vibrant and sustainable future.

The community hub is comprised of 120m² office/business/studio space, exhibition area, an events/performance venue with full catering facilities, two greenhouses for community growing activities and three pitches for caravans.Construction began in 2015 and it is hoped that it will be complete by summer 2016.
