It needs to preserve its heritage assets somewhat better than it has to date. I am saddened every time I walk past the Gateway to Wolsey's College.

We have lots of old buildings - with flowers they could look a lot prettier.

Respondent: Theatres Trust

Representation:

Cultural facilities include your theatres, live music venues (inc. public houses), community spaces, museums, cinemas, libraries and other public and performance venues and are important in supporting the local/visitor economy by attracting people to centres where other businesses benefit from the flow on effects.
Local plans should therefore support arts/culture at all levels to support the local economy and ensure that all residents/visitors, have access to cultural opportunities. Policies should protect, support and enhance cultural facilities and activities, particularly those which might otherwise be traded in for more commercially lucrative developments, and promote cultural led development as a catalyst for regeneration.

We feel that the visitor experience in the town centre would be enhanced by: more trees and planted areas; an increase in sitting areas; more town centre to Waterfront pedestrian and cycle routes; and more public toilets.
Our highest priority would be to establish a high quality music venue, upon the lines of the Apex in Bury St Edmunds, with a capacity of around 350 / 400 possibly with a dance area.
Likewise one or some of the de-commissioned churches in the borough, with good acoustic facilities, might both 'bridge the gap' and preserve an historic building.
Other potential tourism attractions, building on Ipswich's key assets, should be developed or enhanced in town centre locations for example: Ipswich Transport Museum; BT innovation zone; Maritime Museum; and an Ipswich Arts Centre upon the lines of St Mary's Arts Centre in Colchester.

Before we can answer this question we must find out who can deliver marketing activities to better increase tourists and day visitors into the town.
Proposed Tourist Attractions
1. County Hall should be utilised as a Museum
2. Old Post Office is an ideal place for an Art Gallery
3. Ancient House should be utilised as a Museum
4. A tourist attraction needs to exist at the Ipswich Waterfront
Increasing the selection makes it impossible for the visitor to complete all the museums on a single day, so visitors would need to stay overnight/revisit.
"The Link" route from Tower Street to Waterfront should be revisited as an tourist/heritage trail.
Pigs Gone Wild art trail and children-focused events such as Paw Patrol attracted large numbers of people into the town. The latter category are easily organised and
Ipswich should utilise more of these events, i.e. once per week in the summer.

There is a shocking absence of visual and contemporary arts. am finding myself travelling to Bury, Cambridge and most usually Norwich for any whiff of contemporary arts. When the gallery was sadly taken from the college and eventually became a gallery - people thought, oh well, at least there would be life here. But having shows last 10 months, having a sterile silence and utter lack of challenging arts and visual work is sad. Support a growing arts and music centre and WET arts studios hubs! They DO bring in revenue!
