The one way traffic system needs serious attention. I am not convinced replacing roundabouts, which allow a degree of free movement, with traffic signals, such as on Princess Street, actually contributes to any improvement in traffic movement. Rather the reverse.

2 priorities for Ipswich. A) Redevelop the cycle network to make it easier for people to cycle, e.g. a direct route into town from the east. Encourage people to cycle from a to b instead of drive by giving them a serious credible option: a proper lane that is smooth, flat and separate from traffic. B) Re-evaluate the supply/demand for the main town. People go to the town centre for an experience and that has to be unique rather than replicating all other towns. Develop spaces for small retail, boutique businesses and specialist start-ups to thrive in.

Respondent: Northern Fringe Protection Group

Representation:

Infrastructure, infrastructure and infrastructure. In particular, road improvements to ease congestion and measures to improve air quality. It is clear that existing infrastructure - especially the transport network - is already failing. It is also important to deliver high quality jobs thereby increasing the average wage of Ipswich residents and to protect the decreasing green areas in Ipswich Borough. All these measures have an important role to play in improving the health and well-being of Ipswich residents. Further expansion of Ipswich must be accompanied by infrastructure improvements.

In relation to the top priorities identified for Ipswich Borough we recommend that a definition of 'sustainable' is included in the document. In relation to the environment, this should include the priority to create a thriving, enhanced natural environment for the benefit of people and wildlife.

SOCS feel the entire thrust of the Local Plan growth and expansion agenda is inherently unsustainable. A clear and unequivocal determination of the wider infrastructure needs together with a reliable identified funding stream to meet these needs has to be determined and established first.

In order to achieve the level of consistency required, we recommend that any development targets identified in the SEP are aligned with the Evidence Base and eventual set of targets selected for the Local Plan. This will clearly need to be the subject of review and consideration as the Local Plan evolves.

Respondent: Environment Agency

Representation:

We would wish to see Local Plans for Ipswich and Suffolk Coastal that take a holistic approach to sustainable development that benefits people, the environment and the economy. Open landscape is recognised in this plan as an opportunity to create habitat and reduce flood risk, but the provision of multifunctional open space also has the potential to improve a community's physical health and mental wellbeing, and increase the monetary value of new development. The wider benefits of ecosystem services should be recognised, and the Plan should seek to both protect and enhance the natural environment.

Respondent: Bloor Homes

Working collaboratively with neighbouring authorities on cross-boundary issues, including in relation to meet housing needs, should be a key priority for Ipswich Borough Council, particularly given the constraints of existing administrative boundaries. We note the collaborative approach being undertaken by Suffolk Coastal District Council and Ipswich Borough Council in seeking to address housing need, and commend such an approach. Clearly, there is a strong functional relationship between Ipswich and Suffolk Coastal District and it is entirely appropriate (as per the NPPF) for the authorities to work together to ensure development needs are met sustainably.

Two tier local government doesn't work. The entire south east area of Suffolk deeply relies on each other, however, infrastructure, public transport and joined-up planning is appalling or non-existent. Many places have got out of this mess through a unitary authority.
Ipswich desperately needs serious road infrastructure upgrades. Unfortunately the only proposal on the table - an Upper Orwell Crossing - is not suitable.
Ipswich needs to establish its own science park and/or tech park. Emphasis should be against retail parks and light industrial estates. Suffolk should exceed as being a county with its own highly successful tech cluster county-wide. With developments of a film studio at Bentwaters in the
pipework, Suffolk can soon become the Suffolk Powerhouse it should be.

Representation:

Under Questions 4 and 5, the Borough Council should be aware of the County Council's Corporate Priorities set out in 'Our Priorities, 2017-21'. They are consistent with the NPPF and of direct relevance to this Plan. The SCC priorities are inclusive growth, health, care and well being and efficient and effective public services. The priorities are relevant to NPPF statements.

Respondent: Orwell Ahead

Representation:

New Anglia LEP Board representation for Ipswich & Felixstowe area should never fall below 30% (or below our zone's percentage of GVA for Norfolk & Suffolk).
There should be a permanent New Anglia LEP board position for the Felixstowe Port Users Association or the Port of Felixstowe.
Ipswich Borough Council should re-join the Haven Gateway.
New Anglia LEP should be working in greater partnership, or association, with Haven Gateway.
All parties should make it a priority to lobby for a Greater Ipswich Orbital (Northern Bypass) in the next government spending round.
We are urgently calling for a business and academic led member group dedicated to the successful growth of Greater Ipswich & Orwell.
Ipswich Policy Area must have permanent and proportionate representation at SCC cabinet (or Committee) level.

Please think carefully and consult with residents first. Advertise better, I didn't realise this was going on. Make Ipswich a place where people want to be. Areas of Ipswich are rundown with no community spirit to local amenities or places to meet.
No more high rise buildings. More music venues needed for youngsters. Something for youngsters to do in Ipswich would be good. No local sports facilities or anything in Stoke Park.

Don't forget about Broomhill. Install posts next to the grass verges in roads in and out of the town centre to stop people parking and ruining the verge, it gives a poor impression to visitors.
I think the town would also benefit from more free parking, it is far too expensive at the moment. Pay and display car parks are also a bad idea, they discourage people from staying, shopping and eating in Ipswich, as they are always rushing back to the car to avoid a ticket.

Why don't IBC planners understand the local area? My concerns are the planning department are antiquated in thoughts and if it doesn't affect them personally they are not bothered. Offer strange advice which makes me feel they do not understand the local area or community.
IBC need to engage directly with the community. Do we need to infill every spare bit of land with housing? No. There are so many empty buildings and half built things in Ipswich and these should be looked at first.
There is nothing for the people of Ipswich to make them stay.
