The Cornhill Regeneration Project is one of the first major infrastructure projects to commence from the plans outlined by the Ipswich Vision.
The Cornhill project is making good progress so far. An attractive new hoarding is going up next week (beginning 16th of April), which will not only provide a good visual representation of what Ipswich’s main square will look like upon completion, it will also show people how to get around the area during the project.
Last week was a milestone when Brooks & Wood, the project contractors, laid the first set of paving.
The project has been divided into two main phases – Phase 1 (in front of the Town Hall) is due for completion at the end of September. Phase 2 (in front of the former Post Office) should be finished on 31st October.
The Cornhill project is being co-ordinated by Ipswich Borough Council on behalf of the Ipswich Vision Group and is being funded by the Borough Council, New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership, Suffolk County Council and Ipswich Central.
Meanwhile, new stall-holders have arrived in the town centre market – you can now get everything from a Sunday roast in a wrap to a variety of vegan dishes.
