The 'Connected Town' area extends broadly from Christchurch Park and the Waterfront (north to south), and the University of Suffolk and Ipswich Town Football Club (east to west). This neighbourhood brings together business, culture, sports, faith, arts, education, health and community.
We are working to make life in Ipswich more vibrant, more welcoming, more fulfilling.
