Around 160 residents of Rushmere St Andrew Parish attended a public meeting on Monday 2 September at Ipswich School Sports Centre. Rushmere St Andrew Parish Council organised this meeting with a view to providing a platform for residents of the parish to express their opinions on the Ipswich Northern Route Consultation. Over 80 completed questionnaires were collected at the end of the evening. Collated responses from those questionnaires indicate, at present, an overall view against the Ipswich Northern Route.

The deadline to have your say about the Ipswich Northern Route is fast approaching. The consultation closes on 13th September 2019. Please go to

If you are unable to complete the questionnaire online a hardcopy may be obtained this week between 9am - 5pm from:
