Work to start on conversion of derelict site to affordable housing

Have your say

The conversion of a derelict builders’ merchants and yard, in Mildenhall, into 12 homes will begin later this month.

Construction company SEH French will develop the site, in Mill Street, into three one bedroom, seven two bedroom and two four bedroom properties for Havebury Housing Partnership.

They have said the existing barn structure on the site will be preserved and sympathetically restored.

Paul Edwards, director of resources at Havebury Housing Partnership, said: “The site has been derelict for many years and I know the local community has welcomed the opportunity to have some much needed affordable homes and rejuvenate the area.”
