The City of Ipswich has undergone a number of changes over the years and in order to prioritise redevelopment efforts and focused investments, an Ipswich Central master plan is required to move forward with key projects and initiatives.

A considerable amount of work has been undertaken to date, but much remains in the pipeline for investigation or further direction. We will be engaging on different elements of the master plan which will help inform the overall outcome.

This is an opportunity to be a part of the journey and reignite community spirit, while helping to transform Ipswich into a place loved by locals and visitors.
