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.

Area Committee funding

You are here

Funding is available to make positive improvements within each of the five Area Committee areas. Area Committees award funding to projects in local neighbourhoods to improve the life of residents and tackle local issues in the area.

Some examples of what Area Committees have funded in the past:

  • Sports activities for children and young people
  • Festivals and community events
  • Fly-tipping and graffiti removal
  • Picnic tables and a bench at Bourne Park
  • Development of allotments and community gardens

Funding is given in line with the Action Plans, which set out the priorities for each Area Committee.

Applying for funding

If you live in Ipswich and have some ideas to improve your local area you can contact us to check your eligibility or for support in completing your application. Alternatively, get in touch with your Ward Councillor to discuss your ideas further.
