Ipswich is the County Town of Suffolk and, although the Borough boundary is small, its economy supports a far wider area. Already there are thousands of people coming into Ipswich every day of the week and this will only rise as other smaller areas, outside of our control, grow in size.
We offer the major employment opportunities in the area.
We offer the biggest & best culture and leisure in the area.
We offer the best shopping in the area (despite the issues with the Town Centre).
Thousands of people from outside Ipswich benefit from the services operated and paid for by Ipswich Borough Council. Why shouldn’t you, as Council Tax payers benefit from this?
Conservative Councillors believe we should all benefit, to take a share in the success of our Town. It’s a simple policy really, Ipswich residents should get a discount on services operated by the Borough such as Car Parks, the Regent, the Corn Exchange, Sports Centres etc. The cost for this would be met by non-residents paying extra to cover the costs.
As tax-payers we all shoulder the responsibility if things fail, why shouldn’t we share in their success.
A vote for a Conservative Councillor in the next local elections will help make Council Tax fairer for all of us.
