New Local Plan Review

You are here

Review of the Local Plan. 

Ipswich Borough Council adopted its Town Centre and Waterfront Public Realm Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on 24th July 2019.
The Council is undertaking a review of the adopted Ipswich Local Plan 2017, to look ahead to 2036. Although the Local Plan was adopted in 2017, a review is needed to meet a commitment made through policy CS7 ‘The Amount of New Housing Required’. The policy states that the Council will review housing needs jointly with neighbouring authorities and prepare joint or aligned local plan reviews to meet the need. Issues and options consultation took place between August and October 2017 and the next stage is planned for early in 2019.
Ipswich Borough Council is consulting on Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review, and a Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report.
Do you know of or own a site in Ipswich with realistic future development potential within the next twenty years (2016-2036)? Let Ipswich Borough Council know about it so we can consider whether it is a suitable site for allocation within the new Local Plan.
