Ipswich is ready to do business and to meet the challenges of the new post-Covid normal!

As Suffolk’s county town, we are thrilled to give a warm welcome to companies of all shapes and sizes and you’ll find that Ipswich has many advantages over other urban centres vying for your business.

Despite being the oldest Anglo-Saxon town in the country, Ipswich is also one of the fastest growing places in the UK. We are ‘The Connected Town’ and it is only going to get better thanks to the £25m which is being invested in 11 projects as part of the Government’s Town Deal Funding.

Creative Hub

Ipswich Borough Council invites proposals from experienced operators interested in partnering to develop a creative Hub within the Town Centre.

The space is in the lower ground floor of the Town Hall, it has its own entrance on Princes Street and provides a self-contained environment ideal for a Creative Hub.

For more information about this opportunity, click here: Creative Hub Information

Interested operators should submit their initial proposals to by 5pm on Friday 7 June.

Proud of what we have become

Our Waterfront has re-emerged from a gritty dock to a vista of marinas, hotels, restaurants and a new university – symbolising the new Ipswich.

Our town is at the core of an ICT hub stretching out across the region. A thriving agricultural port lies in the centre of the town – and we are just eight miles upstream from the UK’s largest container port at Felixstowe.

We have a diverse and young workforce benefitting from Ipswich’s training and skills agenda, a compact education quarter and a good mix of schools. Ipswich offers real value. We are not restricted by lack of space and over-heated property and rental values. We have Enterprise Zones and so much more!

Working collaboratively

We have come together as a partnership of public bodies and private sector organisations to attract quality investment into our wonderful town.
