    • 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…

      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 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…

    • Profile photo of Ipswi How local are the 2017 local elections? by Ipswi.

      One of my frustrations in regards to local elections is based upon the lack of restrictions as to whom can stand for a specific political ward in local elections. In my view elected councillors should be people who live locally and knows local issues best. Not simply a name, upholding party politics for one of the two main political parties. I fully accept frustrations with technicalities of someone being marginally outside a ward but otherwise …
