Documenting the proposals for Ipswich – past & present
All posts are broken into different categories.
- Year – of proposal
- Type – multiple may be selected
- University – proposals for the campus and accommodation
- Case studies
There will be a post every 2 -3 days.
*Note – Although posts are broken down into these categories, it is easier to search for a street as posts will not appear alphabetically when a category is selected. It is also recommended to type multiple category names in the search bar for a more refined search.
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.
This site aims to document all major proposals that were not realised as well as those that are being planned. Behind most of the larger scale developments, political interests and poor management by local authorities seems to be a recurring theme.
