Part D: Implementation, Targets, Monitoring and Review

(6) CHAPTER 10: Implementation

10.1 A key element of the Core Strategy, as well as the Local Plan in general, is the need to set out clear mechanisms and targets for delivery. This chapter focuses on the implementation component of this, with Chapter 11 focusing on actual Plan targets and Chapter 12 on monitoring and review issues.

10.2 The rest of this chapter is set out in the following sections:

  • Delivery Mechanisms; and
  • Major Infrastructure Proposals.

10.3 Delivery Mechanisms

10.4 The Council will work with the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, Suffolk County Council, and Suffolk districts, particularly within the Ipswich Strategic Planning Area to deliver the employment and housing growth set out in this strategy. The Ipswich Strategic Policy Area Board, which comprises Councillors and Officers from the five Ipswich Strategic Planning Area authorities, was set up in 2007 to ensure the local authorities work together to deliver the vision for the Ipswich Strategic Planning Area. This Board continues to be an important delivery mechanism for the Ipswich Strategic Planning Area.              

10.5 Major Infrastructure Proposals

10.6 The levels of growth proposed within this document are substantial. Linked to these growth levels are identified needs for new infrastructure.

10.7 It is important that the Core Strategy identifies the major issues and sets out how these might be brought forward. Other infrastructure issues are addressed within the Site Allocations and Policies (incorporating IP-One Area Action Plan) Development Plan Document.

10.8 Table 8A identifies the major pieces of infrastructure required to support growth. In addition, support is indicated elsewhere in the plan for other pieces of infrastructure, such as a Wet Dock Crossing. However these are not prerequisites for development to take place.
