Welcome to Our Virtual Exhibition

Seeking Local Views

Welcome to this public exhibition being held by Suffolk County Council as the lead promotor. They are proposing to build a new community on a site known as Land West of Mildenhall.

The new community would include houses, parks, a new school, a new local centre, and an area for jobs. It also includes new community facilities at the Mildenhall Hub, which has already been built and opened.

We have held two previous consultations (in 2021 and 2022) about the proposed Masterplan, a high-level strategic document intended to provide guidance to any future planning applications submitted on the site. This Masterplan was adopted in November 2022.

This consultation seeks your views on our proposed outline planning application for the land.

The main Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) are located here and our comments page is here .
