The Ipswich Town Centre and Waterfront Public Realm Strategy SPD is a document which will provide design guidance for the renewal of Ipswich town centre’s public spaces, including streets, squares, the quays around the waterfront and the small number of green spaces within the central area, mostly churchyards (the study does not include the main urban parks, such as Christchurch or Holywells).
The aim is to achieve attractive, safe and accessible streets and spaces. This will be achieved through two types of guidance:
In addition, the document will provide guidance on the maintenance and management of the public realm.
It is expected that masterplanning, grant applications, planning applications and public realm schemes will be able to use the SPD as guidance in developing more detailed specifications, and that it will provide consistency and vision in support of all future strategic planning for the town centre’s public realm.
The consultation will run for six weeks starting on Wednesday 16th January and ending on Wednesday 27th February 2019.
