Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review

Representation ID: 24744

Respondent: Mr Peter Sutters

Representation:

The plan is looking to "matches the aspiration of all households".

Any plan must include a mix of housing. So that when younger members of the community have outgrown their starter home and wish to aspire to move to bigger and more expensive property - it can be available in Ipswich. Building just small starter and social housing will not create a mixed community just one that only meets some needs and will restrict Ipswich's future potential.

Representation:

A vibrant and buzzing town centre and greater transparency on development of key areas such as the Island site and undeveloped areas in the Waterfront. A better followed up local plan so that proposals for land use come to fruition much earlier than has been the case with previous local plans which promised much but either failed to do so, or have been delivered in piecemeal fashion.

Respondent: Ipswich Limited

Representation:

The boundary of Ipswich needs to be expanded as a matter of urgency. This Greater Ipswich needs two MPs, should be a unitary authority.
The Ipswich Central BID needs to be abolished.
Infrastructure needs to be an urgent priority. A dual carriageway Northern Bypass, rail network expansion and Copdock Interchange junction upgrades as a minimum. Park & Ride needs to be revisited understanding the concept requires subsidy rather than being self-sustainable.

Address our desperate lack of suitable art spaces:
Studio spaces - art centre - grass roots - run by all the community.
Prosperous arts / creative scene - that brings tourists to the town - use of old buildings, supporting growth through hope, creativity and skills.
Culture leads development - has been hugely successful in many other centres around the UK.
Nourishing and enriching environment - green areas supported and developed.
Everyone has access/has a say - routes to securing a balanced wellbeing spaces and centres (town centre hub).
Affordable housing - immediately needed.
Empty premises being used as homeless or affordable living.
Empty spaces adopting the Camelot scheme - like other cities and towns - where people become effective landlords for empty spaces.
