Ipswich is one of the 101 towns across the country eligible to bid for up to £25m of funding to be spent over the next 5 years. A Town Deal Board has been established to help develop proposals for a Town Deal.
Thanks to Towns Deal funding for Ipswich, Ipswich Central and Ipswich Borough Council will be delivering a 'Digital Ipswich' project, which includes new information screens in the Town Centre and the creation of ten Augmented Reality (AR) Trails.
The Towns Deal Fund is part of the Government's investment plan to level up regions, providing an opportunity for economic growth across the country. Ipswich Borough Council and partners were successful in bidding for £2.81 million to invest in improvements to the towns shopping parades focussing on revitalising retail hubs across the Borough.
