Putting service at the heart of Mildenhall

A rare opportunity exists in Mildenhall to bring together a range of public services on one site, making access easier and cutting costs. A project group, involving the potential partners, has obtained planning consent for plans to create a 'Mildenhall Hub' with a view to opening the first facilities in 2020/21. Building of the hub started in 2019.

Those involved in exploring the Mildenhall Hub include:

  • Citizen’s Advice Bureau
  • DWP (Job Centre)
  • Mildenhall College Academy
  • Mildenhall swimming pool and the Dome (Abbeycroft Leisure)
  • National Health Service
  • Suffolk County Council
  • Suffolk Libraries Service
  • Suffolk Police and Crime Commissioner/Suffolk Constabulary
  • West Suffolk Council

The project is also part of the Government's One Public Estate Programme

Important note: In some local plan consultation documents part of the proposed site for the hub is included within a larger potential growth site. Please note that the working title 'Mildenhall Hub' relates only to the relocation of existing public services as part of an extension of the Sheldrick Way school site. It does not refer to the proposal for a housing growth site to the West of Mildenhall, which is a separate matter (more details on the local plan).
