Retail surveys

You are here

The Council undertakes surveys each year to monitor the types of uses and number of vacant units within the Central Shopping Area and the District and Local Centres. This relates to policies DM20 and DM21 of the superseded 2017 Local Plan, which was the plan in force for most of the latest monitoring period, 2021-22. 

The new Ipswich Local Plan was adopted in March 2022 and will provide the basis for the retail surveys for 2022-2023. In the interim, the document below, Central Shopping Area Retail Units by Zone 2023, supports the implementation of Policy DM27 of the Ipswich Local Plan Review 2018-2036.
