Draft Core Strategy and Policies Focused Review
DRAFT CORE STRATEGY AND POLICIES FOCUSED REVIEW
Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk, and its largest urban centre.
The Council believes that the planning of our town is one of our key roles and as such we are very pleased to set out our vision, objectives and strategy for the future development of Ipswich. It is vital that we manage and guide the development of the town to increase its vibrancy, and to protect and enhance its key assets. We need to ensure changes benefit the town’s existing residents, businesses and visitors.
This is a focused review of the Council’s Core Strategy and Policies document which sets out our policies for the future development of the town and forms part of the Ipswich Local Plan.
There are many challenges ahead associated with the development of Ipswich. This document is the key strategy document that will help shape that development. We look forward to working with our partners to implement the strategy contained within the adopted Core Strategy and Policies document and this subsequent focused review.
We would welcome any comments you might have on this document. Please can you ensure your comments are received by the Council by 5pm on Monday 10th March 2014 at the latest.
We appreciate that not everyone will want to read all the documentation and that some people would welcome the opportunity to discuss issues with Council officers.
