We are currently streamlining our processes, which means when we collect your rent via Direct Debit it will have a new account reference. This does not change the way in which we collect Direct Debits. If you pay between 16th – 22nd of the month your October payment will be taken later than planned.

Changes to parking restrictions

Please be aware that parking restrictions often change during home football matches, concerts and other special events. This is to keep traffic flowing freely, for security reasons or for road works. This can sometimes include the temporary closure of car parks.

Other operators

In addition to Ipswich Borough Council, there are a number of other operators who manage car parks in Ipswich. These are shown on the All About Ipswich website.
