Smith's Wood Village Centre took another bold step forward as work began on its latest multi-million pound development of brand new shops and offices, which join the housing, school buildings and public realm improvements already completed as part of the area's regeneration programme.
Following a lively consultation and vote for a name for their new village centre local residents in the Craig Croft area have made their opinions known and Solihull Council and the North Solihull Partnership can today announce that the name chosen is Chelmund's Cross Village Centre.
