Suffolk County Council (SCC) decided to jump aboard and claim their own RoW across the lock but they were just putting on a show even to the extent of getting a QC’s opinion of an appeal when the claim failed.

    • Profile photo of Ipswi The Link scrapped plan another nail in Ipswich waterfront coffin by Ipswi.

      Archant’s old offices in Lower Brook Street were to be turned into “The Link” – an architecturally brilliant mixed office, retail, leisure, hotel and multi-storey car park development.
