Come and see our lovely town Ipswich!
From Ipswich Borough Council
An ambitious plan to attract more visitors to Ipswich town centre was launched today.
The Quids In Campaign has brought together Ipswich Borough Council, Ipswich Central, Suffolk County Council, car park operator NCP and Ipswich Buses with a simple message: It’s cheaper to get here by car and by bus (than before)!
The campaign, which came after discussions with retailers, will run Mondays to Fridays from 2nd September to 15th November and will see:
· Tariffs on Ipswich Borough Council’s five town centre car parks and Cromwell Square car park slashed to just £1 for the rest of the day and night after 3pm (weekdays).
· Tariffs on NCP’s car parks in Cox Lane and Tacket Street cut to a total of £1 after 3pm (weekdays) – good news for Regent Theatre audiences and shoppers alike.
· Park and ride fares cut to £1 (£2 return) after 3pm Mondays to Fridays.
· Inward journeys on Ipswich Buses (town services) reduced to just £1 after 3pm (weekdays).
All the above bargain fares are available Mondays to Fridays only during the trial period and have been devised to boost retailers and other businesses.
Town centre business company Ipswich Central is a major partner in the “we’re backing Ipswich” campaign and is co-ordinating the scheme through its allaboutipswich.com website. Quids In is designed to show that a buoyant Ipswich economy is good for the rest of the county.
