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.
More information about the proposals, the information events and how to take part in the consultation can be found on the Ipswich Northern Route website from Friday 5 July: www.ipswichnorthernroute.org.uk
Suffolk County Council’s Leader, Matthew Hicks, said:
“I promised earlier this year that we would keep residents informed about our shared plans for the Ipswich Northern Route consultation. Today we are announcing the timescale for this starting on the 5th of July.
“There are a number of opportunities for people to attend information events, to talk with the project team about the proposals. We are also encouraging as many people as possible to take part in our online consultation once it begins.
“The public consultation will inform the Strategic Outline Business Case and will assist us in considering the next steps.”
