Ipswich AR Trail themes

Digital Ipswich aims to make Ipswich a more digitally enabled town. One of the projects is to develop ten augmented reality trails for everyone to enjoy. 

Augmented Reality (AR) is an interactive experience that combines the real world and computer generated content using smartphones. An AR Trail is a guided tour using a mobile phone to navigate a set route that offers learning and fun as part of a virtual interactive experience. Temporary pop-up AR Trails in Christchurch and Holywells Parks have proved popular with families.  

Thanks to Town’s Deal funding, ten permanent AR trails will be created around Ipswich. These trails will further highlight the town’s strong heritage and culture and help to increase the town’s economic vitality. In addition, we hope the trails will appeal to residents, visitors and staycationers, encouraging everyone to engage in an activity that supports active health and wellbeing. 

Please share your thoughts and ideas on themes for the new trails before the 11 December closing date. Find out more at: Digital Ipswich | Ipswich Borough Council

Polling district and polling places review 2023 - 2025

In accordance with Section 17 of the Electoral Registration and Administration Act 2013, every council in England and Wales must undertake and complete a compulsory review of all the polling districts and polling places in its area, within a 16-month period commencing from 1 October every five years. The last compulsory review in Ipswich took place in 2018-20 and a new review is currently taking place.

The Council is now conducting a six week public consultation to seek comments on the proposals for change, between 20 November until 29 December 2023. 

The consultation is open to everyone; public, stakeholders and community groups. We are particularly interested to hear from groups or individuals with accessibility requirements.
