The Ipswich Borough Council Core Strategy and Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) and Proposals Map were formally adopted by the Council on 14 December 2011.
The Core Strategy and Policies DPD sets out the vision, objectives, spatial strategy and policies to guide development for Ipswich Borough until 2027. It does not allocate sites for development other than strategic sites of Borough-wide significance. It replaces a number of saved policies from the 1997 Ipswich Local Plan.
The Proposals Map key indicates which 1997 Local Plan designations and allocations are changed and which remain in force until updated by other Development Plan Documents.
Additional reports that supported the adoption of the Core Strategy and Policies DPD can be viewed below.
The Ipswich Local Plan was adopted in November 1997. In 2007 a number of the Local Plan policies were ‘saved’.
