Details announced for the Ipswich Northern Route consultation

Members of the public are invited to have their say on the potential options for the Ipswich Northern Route when the consultation officially begins on 5 July 2019.

The public are being asked to comment on three proposed routes for the new road to the north of Ipswich. The consultation is being jointly developed by Suffolk County Council, Ipswich Borough, East Suffolk and Babergh and Mid Suffolk councils. It is also supported by West Suffolk Council.

The consultation information and questionnaire will be available online and will run for ten weeks from Friday 5 July until Friday 13 September 2019. During this time eleven drop-in sessions will be held throughout July where members of the public can find out about the project and speak with the team.

11 events were held in July to inform people about the proposals.



A statement by Woodbridge Town Council has been issued as follows:-

The Ipswich Northern Route is rapidly raising interest in the areas which it will affect, and many villages are holding public meetings to allow residents to express their opinions.

Woodbridge Town Council will hold their Public Meeting next Thursday, 22nd August, at 7pm in the Community Hall (Station Road, IP12 4AU – large car park outside)

We will be delighted if you, your Councillors and your parishioners would care to join us.  We will have speakers to talk about the route itself, the traffic implications, and especially about the potentially disastrous effect on the environment and wildlife.

Admission is free, of course, and we look forward to welcoming you to Woodbridge.
