We’re asking Ipswich residents to put their bins out the night before their scheduled collection during this extra hot weather so crews can start a little earlier and stagger their rounds, avoiding the hottest part of the day (mid-afternoon). We appreciate your cooperation.

Crown car park free offer

Published21st June 2019

The Stay For Three, Get Them Free offer at Ipswich Borough Council’s Crown car park starts this Sunday (23rd June).

The offer of up to three hours of free parking every Sunday from June 23 to September aims to encourage more people into the town centre to see the town's attractions, including the Elmer's Big Parade Suffolk trail this summer.

Councillor Sarah Barber, whose portfolio covers the town centre, said: “The first three hours parking at Crown on Sundays during the summer will be absolutely free. This means people can come in, do some shopping, have a coffee or a meal, head to the Museum and Mansion, follow the Elmer trail or simply have a stroll while keeping extra money in their pockets.”
