    • Profile photo of Ipswi Cornhill Redevelopment Planning Application Comments by Ipswi. 1 2

      Various comments are now appearing since it was changed to FPI3. … I have been invited to comment on the above location by the Ipswich Society. My objection is very straightforward. Can IBC show who owns the actual Cornhill routes and places? As they know who block paved the area (IBC or SCC) with public funds it is obviously a public right of way. It has probably been a right of way for hundreds of years as it has been used by the public…

    • 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. Penn Commercial as agent and Wrenbridge as developer. Not an greyfriars disaster. Except, aiming for the floor, Ipswich is to get retirement housing development instead. The Link wasn’t that ambitious. CGI drawings hint at a Waitrose…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ben Gummer & Conservative Manifesto by Ipswi.

      Former Conservative Ipswich MP and current Tory candidate for Ipswich, Ben Gummer, Cabinet Minister, was tasked with writing the Conservative Party Manifesto. As you would expect for a 2-times MP and prospective candidate for a third term, Ben is an advocate for Ipswich (in particular for the Ipswich Waterfront). The manifesto didn’t include anything to benefit Ipswich or the Suffolk economy specifically… and the same applies with Ea…

    • Profile photo of Mart Parking in Arras Square, St Stephens Lane by Mart. 1 2

      Still a big problem with no sign of any action from either SCC of IBC. So far as we understand their is a Traffic Order preventing parking but as there are no signs up it can’t be enforced. IBC would be responsible for the enforcement but they have advised us that they are waiting for SCC to sort out the signs. SCC also advise that there are potential land ownership issues that may be complicating the issue. Bottom line is we can’t g…

    • Profile photo of Dan Sandy Martin by Dan.

      This will be the Sandy Martin discussion topic. Sandy Martin is the Labour Candidate for Ipswich, General Election 2017. It appears he doesn’t currently have a website, a bit worrying a month away from a General Election although I am sure it will all soon be revealed when he launches his General Election campaign.

      Latest: We don’t know what his idea for a Northern Bypass involves but it is a victory to avoid the Ben Bridge (Upper Orwell Crossings) getting built.

    • Profile photo of Ipswi The Upper Orwell Crossings a bridge too far? by Ipswi. 1 2

      From Ipswich Society newsletter Ipswich Society April 2017 (issue 207):- Clever politicians throw their weight behind projects that are likely to succeed and avoid those that will be a long time coming. Thus we can guess that the proposals to build additional bridges over the Orwell and the New Cut are likely to happen sooner rather than later. However the rationale for the biggest of these bridges is debatable and the methodology used to establ…
