LSP were selected by SMBC to redevelop the existing Local Centre, following a formal tender process in July 2014. The development forms part of the wider regeneration of Chelmund’s Cross Village Centre, which has been developed over 4 years.

The scheme is anchored by a Central England Co-op food store, with office accommodation on the first floor for SMBC. The development also includes a Co-operative Funeral Care service and two retail units, one of which will be a new community-run fish and chip shop. In addition, there is a car park for shoppers and visitors to the Village Centre and other improvements to public areas.

The local area has seen huge investment with a new Enterprise Centre, Primary School, Medical Centre and Care Home and LSP was pleased to contribute to the overall vibrancy of the scheme with the delivery of this development.
