Ipswich Vision

Ipswich Vision is a partnership project which aims to deliver a single Vision to create the successful county town centre which Ipswich and Suffolk expect and deserve.

The projects include:

Regeneration - We will set out measures for redeveloping key sites in the town and promote Ipswich as a prime location for new homes, businesses and retailers, to a national and international audience. We will support jobs growth across the town and in the Enterprise Zones in particular.

Transport - We will improve access to the town centre by all modes of transport to help improve the accessibility, viability and vitality of our town. We will deliver the Wet Dock Crossing and remodel the Star Lane Gyratory.

Shopping - We will target new retailers and restaurants to the town centre and work with building owners to improve shop units and shop fronts. We will identify ways of improving our historic market and will run a digital high street pilot.

Public Spaces and Public Buildings - We will bring forward proposals for the improvement of town centre streets, renovate key public buildings like the Town Hall and improve the station and station forecourt. We will do more to attract visitors into the town and celebrate the town’s heritage with a new heritage centre on the waterfront.

Case Study: Upper Orwell Crossings

"The Upper Orwell Crossings are an exciting project for Ipswich. The scheme will lead to reduced traffic congestion in central Ipswich and be a catalyst for the regeneration of the Waterfront and Island site."

-Cathy Frost, Ipswich Vision Co-ordinator
