Thanks to the hard work of our two Conservative MPs, Tom Hunt and Dan Poulter, we have secured a £25 million grant from the Towns Fund, the maximum available from the government, to be used on several projects, many for the town centre which has been hit hard by the pandemic and modern shopping habits.
Your Labour council has invested over £50 million of taxpayers money in out-of-town retail, like Peterborough – money that should have been spent in our town, to benefit you.
Ipswich Labour wasted huge sums of money on costs for the overrun of the ‘Cornhenge’ project and the corrective safety measures needed after construction. Many buildings have been left derelict under Labour’s watch.
The Town fund will change this and bring buildings such as Paul’s Silo back into use. Working alongside partners we would ensure that Ipswich is seen as ‘open for business’ with new innovative ideas, to not just the town centre but many of the shopping parades that are situated across all areas of Ipswich. Conservatives believe nothing is impossible for our County town and will work with partners to make the most of any funding
opportunities and maximise our historic past, as well as deliver modern ambitious projects.
