A vibrant new community facility for Mixenden.
Mixenden Community Hub will provide a GP surgery, pharmacy, library and a community garden all on one site. The new facility will be a focal point for the community, improving access to services and opportunities, and making better use of the Council’s estate.
The proposed building includes features to ensure services are COVID-secure that support the Council’s priority to tackle the climate emergency. Construction methods will ensure the building performs to a high environmental standard, and features such as on-site surface water attenuation and a community garden will help with flood resilience and biodiversity.
A central hub where people can look after their health, learn, relax, and socialise.
Brand new GP surgery, pharmacy, library, and community garden.
Under one roof
The Pharmacy and Surgery will have a direct internal link allowing easy and safe access for all users.
The new library will be located next to the pharmacy providing state of art resources in a modern environment.
A community garden will be created for residents and local groups to use.
The planning application (reference: 21/01058/FUL) has been submitted and is available to view on the Planning public access system.
Detailed surveys have been undertaken on the existing library and the site is being cleared of waste and overgrown vegetation in preparation for the construction stage.
The tender package has been issued to the marketplace for contractors to provide estimates to build the Mixenden Community Hub. Subject to tender returns for the proposed new development in the heart of Mixenden, the estimated completion date for the Hub is September 2022.
Prior to the outbreak of Covid-19 we were planning to start construction in summer 2020, however this unfortunately had to be delayed because of the pandemic. Work is now progressing in the background, and the next stage will see the project team finalising the detailed design whilst continuing to work closely with the surgery, pharmacy and library representatives. We hope to be in a position to give a clearer update on time scales before the end of October.
