There is a new Enterprise Centre providing office space for small and new start-up businesses alongside new community facilities.

Chelmund’s Cross Health Centre

Work on the new £3m Chelmund’s Cross Health Centre is well underway. The health centre will be the new location for the existing Chelmund’s Cross GP surgery, alongside a brand new pharmacy and home to the local dentist’s surgery. The dentist’s old building will be demolished to make way for the last element of the village centre which is hoped to be an assisted living/residential scheme.
