Ipswich has seen much urban expansion over the last decade, especially in the Waterfront area, however, many of the ambitious proposals either get dropped or downgraded to a small scale development. Though ambition seems to have dwindled since the 2008 crash, the dire incompetence shown by local authorities is also having an effect, though Ipswich is once again gaining confidence… slowly.

Behind most of the larger scale developments, political interests and poor management by local authorities seems to be a recurring theme.
