      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…

      More historical comments on the Upper Orwell Crossing (then Wet Dock Crossing). Ipswich Star has deliberately used the Wet Dock Crossing term early on (even with the switch of terms) to hide criticism… too bad on IPSWI we are displaying them all in one place for you to easily read. Government pledges £2 million for Ipswich wet dock link Peter, thanks for that background info. I am glad to see it’s only statue law and not natural law…

    • 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…
