Masterplanner sought for Ipswich industrial site

  • Comment

Ipswich Borough Council (IBC) is seeking an architect to masterplan its 52 hectare Sproughton Road development site

Purchased by the local authority last year, the former British Sugar factory next to the A14 is earmarked for re-use as an employment-led, industrial and commercial district.

The winning multi-disciplinary team will draw up development options and a disposal strategy to ‘protect IBC’s long term interests and maximise beneficial return on investment.’

According to the contract notice: ‘The site concerned lies adjacent to the boundary of Ipswich Borough but within Babergh District. The site is owned by IBC. IBC is not the planning authority for this site.

‘IBC wishes to work with the officers of Babergh Council in delivering a mutually agreed successful redevelopment of this site, whilst achieving IBC’s stated outcomes and objectives for the site.’

The contract will cover a range of services including analysis and site planning, archaeological survey, urban design, architecture and landscaping.

The chosen team will be appointed in December and expected to submit its masterplan to the council by September next year.

The deadline for receipt of tenders is 12noon on 3 August.
