Ipswich is divided into five areas, each of which has its own Area Committee. Within these areas Councillors work with residents, businesses, and community groups to discuss how their budget can be spent to make improvements. Each Committee has an annual budget, (see below, last updated 23/11/2023).

South West: £7,305.74
North West: £6,562.00
