Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review

Question 50:

Representation ID: 25226

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: New Anglia LEP for Norfolk and Suffolk

Representation Summary:

Three Space to Innovate Enterprise Zone sites are located within the town; Futura Park (E17 on the plan), Waterfront Island (a mixed use site) and Princes Street (E7). These sites have strong potential for employment development, as evidenced by the sector summary tables within the recent Ipswich Economic Area Sector Needs Assessment (Lichfields, September 2017, Table 16.4 ). They are also incentivised for development with Enterprise Zone status. New Anglia would therefore urge the Borough Council to continue to protect these sites for employment purposes.

Question 51:

Representation ID: 25227

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: New Anglia LEP for Norfolk and Suffolk

Representation Summary:

Whilst it is recognised that sites should not be protected for employment when there is no reasonable prospect of delivery, the Borough Council will be mindful of the need for a supply of employment land and different types of units to ensure that businesses have opportunities to relocate and grow. The New Anglia LEP has a range of programmes to assist with bringing forward development sites and supporting the development of new business uses, particularly in key sectors and specific priority locations identified within the new Economic Strategy for Norfolk and Suffolk (such as Ipswich and Enterprise Zone sites).

Question 40:

Representation ID: 25228

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: New Anglia LEP for Norfolk and Suffolk

Representation Summary:

New Anglia LEP is committed to the Ipswich Vision and will continue to support the evolution and implementation of the Vision. Through better alignment with the Ipswich Vision, the Local Plan could add significant value to efforts to revitalise Ipswich Town Centre, but it is recognised that the Ipswich Vision and the Local Plan approach the issues in different ways. In developing the Local Plan, the Borough Council should consider how far planning policies and allocations can contribute to the coordination of investment in Ipswich Town Centre, through the Ipswich Vision.
