Airfield to become i-Hub

IT has emerged that Eye Airfield could be known in the future as the Hartismere Enterprise i-Hub.

Core Connections, the consultants commissioned by Mid Suffolk District Council to look at the old Second World War airfield’s future, have produced a newsletter outlining the way forward.

This vision, including the site’s potential new name, details how the airfield could become a food, energy and waste centre of excellence in the future.

The company’s look into the future development of Eye Airfield is available for residents and interested parties to comment on via the Mid Suffolk website:

Core Connections’ vision, plus all of the feedback received on it via the website, will then be used to produce a development brief for the airfield.

Tim Passmore, district council leader, said that the development of the airfield is key to economic prosperity in the area.
