Red Lodge benefits from a recently constructed community centre 'The Millennium Centre'. The village also has its own doctor's surgery, and play area.
Much development has taken place in Red Lodge over the last few years and it is still ongoing. This development consists of new homes from a variety of building companies and an industrial estate.
There are plans for a new village centre, which should include a supermarket, a new Post Office and other recreational facilities including a football ground, a cricket pitch, and a sports pavilion which are nearing completion.
There are also provisions for a primary school to be opened. An area has been catered for this purpose within the newly developed area.
It is acknowledged that this is predominantly due to Red Lodge's convenient central location within East Anglia allowing easy access to Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and London to name but a few. Forest Heath District Council devised a master plan in 1998 for Red Lodge which shows the proposed vision for the village. The council's master plan is viewable on the internet.
Red Lodge is ideally placed for commuters wishing to travel to the nearby towns of Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket, or Cambridge, with access to the A14/A11 located nearby.
For those wishing to travel further afield, commuters can take the train from Newmarket railway station, which has regular hourly connections to Cambridge. At Cambridge you can travel to London on the Cambridge to London Liverpool Street or London Kings Cross. You can also travel to Kings Lynn, Norwich, and Stansted Airport.
