Daedalus West is one of three segments of the Solent Enterprise Zone at Daedalus, comprising 14 ha of land available for development for commercial use.

It currently has an outline planning consent for around 22,000 sq m of commercial development. Partners in the Enterprise Zone are working to upgrade the infrastructure and to prepare serviced plots for businesses.

Daedalus West could provide large sites for major businesses or a range of smaller development opportunities. It is particularly well-suited to businesses seeking restricted access or secure entry facilities because it is accessed by a single dedicated controlled entry point. Daedalus West adjoins the main runway and would therefore benefit aerospace or other engineering businesses that need access to the Solent area’s highly skilled local labour force, an on-site engineering Centre of Excellence, secure premises, use of an operational airfield and a marine slipway.
