    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich: shabby and rundown cesspit hell hole by Ipswi.

Ben Gummer MP was shocked and angered over people commented on how “shabby and rundown” the town is with others going to extremes calling it a “cesspit” and “hell hole”. Naturally the politicians didn’t listen to the concerns and di…

      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 Ipswi The Upper Orwell Crossings a bridge too far? by Ipswi.

      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…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi Ipswich Waterfront by Ipswi.

      Ipswich Waterfront: Time to pull the plug? For many the Ipswich Waterfront is a 21st century project but digging into the history a little, the project is over 30 years old with early steps in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and despite being the sole tourism focus for Ipswich town we have very little to show for it. Ever since the Star Lane gyratory was built, alternative uses for the Wet Dock were sought. This included early developments of re…

      Terrorism never succeeds in Britain says Ipswich MP whose parents were caught in Brighton bomb By strange and unhappy coincidence, I was going to write this week about terrorism, writes MP for Ipswich, Ben Gummer in the wake of the Westminster attacks. I grew up far more conscious of terror than any of us would wish a child to be. My mother and father were in the Brighton Bomb and it was only by a stroke of remarkable good fortune that both of t…

      New Orwell crossings and Cornhill upgrade signal bright future for Ipswich town centre Together these developments could really transform Ipswich town centre, and I’m sure most people welcome the investment that they will bring to the town.
