Towns Fund consultation - have your say!

Published29th September 2020

A funding bid for Ipswich worth up to £25m is being drawn up and the public’s views are being sought on which projects should be included.

The Towns Fund is a Government scheme for towns such as Ipswich to boost economic productivity and support sustainable growth. Ipswich is one of the 101 towns across the country eligible to bid for the fund.

A Town Deal Board has been established to help develop proposals and now they want to know what the people who live and work in the town think.

The consultation, which runs from 29 September – 13th October, gives the public the chance to review 15 projects that have been proposed as part of the bid and an opportunity to pitch their own ideas.

The money has to be spent within the next 5 years and projects should fall within six categories: local transport; digital connectivity; urban regeneration, planning and land use; arts, culture and heritage; skills infrastructure and enterprise infrastructure.
