Ipswich: Plans For Town Centre Published

Ipswich Borough Council are publishing the short-list of planned designs for the Cornhill in Ipswich town centre.

The design concepts for regenerating the area are on display from today and the partners behind the competition are urging the public to see them for themselves.

The partnership behind the ambitious plans took up a challenge from retail guru Sir Stuart Rose to transform the heart of the town centre to welcome more visitors.

A partnership between Ipswich Borough Council, Ipswich Central and Ipswich MP Ben Gummer then linked up with Suffolk County Council and University Campus Suffolk to take the project forward. Sir Stuart then agreed to become an advisor to the partnership.

Architects were asked earlier this year to tender for the Cornhill redevelopment design work and a shortlist of five has now been selected.

The designs will be on view for the week in the Town Hall.

A winning design will be selected by the partnership in mid-September.
