The Council is undertaking a review of the adopted Ipswich Local Plan 2017, to look ahead to 2036. Although the Local Plan was adopted in 2017, a review is needed to meet a commitment made through policy CS7 ‘The Amount of New Housing Required’. The policy states that the Council will review housing needs jointly with neighbouring authorities and prepare joint or aligned local plan reviews to meet the need. Issues and options consultation took place between August and October 2017 and the next stage is planned for early in 2019.
