1.) MicrosoftWord-SEBS-SADCICFinalSurveyReport161008  Oct 2008

The Saxmundham & District Survey Report produced by Suffolk Enterprise Business Support. The research was by way of a mass postal survey to nearly 5,500 residences in the IP17 postal code area (Saxmundham & District). The report is based on a return of nearly 20% of the questionnaires posted out. These findings led to the Saxmundham Community Plan.


2.) Saxmundham Community Plan 4.2 version  Feb 2009

The Saxmundham Community Plan, produced in conjunction with The Civic Trust, produces a Vision for Saxmundham and an Action plan to achieve it. The flagship action is the establishment of a Community Enterprise Centre as a multi-function, multi-agencvy building, involving the Third Sector, The Public Sector and the Private Sector.

7.) The Saxmundham Community Enterprise Centre- Draft Outline for Discussion May 2010

The Saxmundham Middle School will close in June 2012. It provides an excellent opportunity, as a base facility, to convert and refurbish it into the SADCIC proposed Community Enterprise Centre, based on the wishes of the local communty.

It is vital that we gear up to maximise the benefit that we can derive from this opportunity. If we do not plan for and resource this opportunity adequately then we will miss out on a major and indeed once only opportunity for this generation of our community. Equally important is that we should maximise the opportunity thus created to provide a lasting local legacy of jobs, skills and both community and enterprise facilities.


With the potential arrival of Sizewell C, both events represent a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Together they could provide an extremely powerful boost to the well-being of an area with a relatively-high deprivation factor and paucity of local amenities.
