Summary of Constraints Mapping

Identified Constraints

Transport Network

There will be a requirement for both on-site and off-site transport infrastructure or mitigation measures to offset any adverse impacts upon the local highway network that will be generated from the traffic movement created (please refer to our  Sustainable Transport and Movement board for more information).


There are no designated assets of archaeological interest. There are also no listed buildings on the site itself, but there are a number of listed buildings within its vicinity such as the Grade I listed Church of St. Mary. The site also abuts Mildenhall  Conservation area on its south-eastern edge.


The site itself comprises predominantly of arable land with only limited vegetation in the form of field margins, hedgerow and woodland. There are four statutory designated nature conservation sites within 2km of the site.

Flood Risk

The site is situated within Flood Zone 1, indicating a low risk of flooding from river or tidal sources. The vast majority of the site is also not susceptible to surface water flooding, excluding a few isolated patches which are at medium risk.


Aircraft noise generated from RAF Lakenheath and RAF Mildenhall should not be a significant constraint given the separation distance between the bases and site itself. The site is illustrated to fall outside of the noise contours as shown on this map.


The site is within 300 metres of the Mildenhall Sewage Treatments Work (STW) which carries a minimal risk of odour disturbance. The site sits outside the area of higher odour concentrations and is therefore not considered an issue.
