Conservatives give £25m for Ipswich Town Centre from New Towns Fund

The 100 places invited to develop proposals for a new generation of multi-million-pound Town Deals have been announced by the Government, and Ipswich is one of the successful recipients, eligible for support from the £3.6 billion Towns Fund.

Tom Hunt (pictured) who is working to be the new Conservative MP for Ipswich, says "

"I'm delighted that Ipswich is one of the places that will benefit from the new Towns Fund. When talking to local residents, I lose count of the number of times the state of our Town Centre has come up in conversation. If spent in the right way, the £25 million provided by the Government could give Ipswich Town centre a massive boost. I encourage Ipswich Borough Council to engage fully with every section of our community when deciding how to invest this money.

"A few months ago I spoke with Jake Berry MP, the Minister responsible for the fund and the difference a contribution could make to Ipswich. I'm very glad that the Government have listened."
