    Why is this even news? This will be followed up when the work begins, during and after... and then once the car park has been constructed.

    Was this the site that they talked about being a Tesco/supermarket and hotel?

    I believe this site was intended to be a small convenience/supermarket and coffee shop on ground floor with hotel above. Not sure if Tesco was mentioned but I think they were the likely tenant. I am not sure what happened to this idea, appears to have been scrapped for a car park...

    Appears to have been in March 2017... by August I think it was this had already been scrapped. They really piss me off haha

    So it is possible the car park could become this development later but basically they have pulled the plug on the idea and will remain a car park for 6-8 years minimum. I had a giggle earlier at the Sproughton Enterprise Park documents where plans for more offices are planned not only on that site but also various other sites across town... will post information on that shortly!

      Sorry, didn't get round to it last night but is now here... Ipswich Borough Council intends to expand Princes Street Office Corridor 30,000 square metres of B1 office space. To put this into perspective Connexions 159 is approx 4180sqm, so we are talking around 7 additional Fisons/Connexions 159 sized buildings... and this excludes the Malthouse offices planned nearby and of course the allocation in Sproughton Enterprise Park (maximum of 13,950sqm B1 offices - about 3 Connexion 159 sized office blocks).
