      Is there an major problem with municipal bus company Ipswich Buses Ltd?

Their Managing Director and Finance Director both went recently, a new MD hasn’t been found (Rob Bellamy from Peterborough remains interim Managing Director, previously Waste and Fleet Managemen…

    • 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…

      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…
