    • 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…

      So Ipswich MP Ben Gummer was instrumental into securing the £20m investment to complete Regatta Quay “Wine Rack” but he didn’t always see it as important. We have uncovered newspaper articles where Ben Gummer MP demanded the Wine Rack to be demolished (even at a cost of £1 million). Why the change of heart?EMPTY BUILDING MAY NEVER BE COMPLETED 23RD JULY 2011 | EAST ANGLIAN DAILY TIMES The empty skeleton of a huge developme…

    • Profile photo of Dan Ipswich Town Centre begging by Dan.

      On Thursday at around 5.30pm outside M&S as I waited for someone (approx 10 minutes or so) I was approached by 3 people asking for money. This is on the street in a busy part of town almost central – not outside rail station, on a bridge, alleyways or the like. One of these people asked every single person he could see and when he kept hearing “No” or people ignoring or avoiding him he finally moved on. One of which (not t…

    • Profile photo of Dan Star Lane Gyratory: Bridge Street by Dan.

      I was situated in a Chinese Buffet for a cheap eat at lunchtime as I haven’t been in many many years; and was shocked at the view from outside the window. I always felt the traffic lights so close to the roundabouts was a silly idea – in particular the first one on Star Lane. The traffic lights stopped traffic approximately every 30 seconds… which gridlocked the entire twin roundabouts on several occasions. Countless red light …

    • Profile photo of Dan Lloyds Avenue rejuvenation? by Dan.

      Penn Commercial has a brochure (property particulars) for the former pub in Lloyds Avenue with an artist impression of “A view of street montage that has been proposed for Lloyds Avenue” – is this actually a proposed design by the council or some nonsense the commercial estate agent has put together to get a client?I was only ever aware of the roof version of Lloyds Avenue being proposed (without substance – merely an i…

    • Profile photo of Dan Cornhill Redevelopment – Planning Application Photos by Dan.

      Ipswich Borough Council has submitted its planning application (17/00235/FUL) for the awful Cornhill Redevelopment. Shortly after the announcement people got angry at the cost of destroying the town. The smug undeserved sense of accomplishment by the parts of Ipswich Vision resulted in us writing to the leader of the council. If YOU do NOT want it, speak up! Send in a representation against the development proposal… They have denied you a…

      What is better? Ipswich Waterfront with Ben’s vanity project Upper Orwell Crossings or Orwell County Park with Orwell Bridge? ( This isn’t about Upper Orwell Crossing Vs Orwell Bridge… but what is more of a gem for Ipswich… ) Yesterday, I made a trip down to Orwell Country Park armed with a 5-year old mobile phone camera (i.e. no professional camera, no fancy software, expensive lenses) a quick point-and-shoot by someone …

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Has the Ipswich Waterfront bubble burst? by Ipswi.

      Cult Cafe bar and The Brewery Tap to close? Ipswich Star had recently reported that The Brewery Tap is closing. See: The Brewery Tap closes. Speculation of this due to zero rating from a food hygiene inspection to a struggling enterprise. The Brewery Tap could actually be closing due to the redevelopment of the Cliff Quay former Tolly Cobbold brewery site or Upper Orwell Crossing going through the site to Cliff Lane. As more information emerges …
