    • 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 Cornhill Redevelopment deadline approaching by Ipswi.

      Monday 24th April 2017 will be the last day for representations on the Cornhill Redevelopment project (IP/17/00235/FPI3). Unfortunately very few representations have been made through the normal planning application process even with Ipswich Society alerting its members. This goes for both positive representations and objections. This should have been another public consultation.

      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. But of course there will be critics who don’t like what is planned – and we’ve already seen some of their comments appearing on our websites.
