About this event

Construction work to deliver the Ipswich Flood Defence Management Strategy started on site in late 2015. When completed it will provide a 1 in 300 standard of protection to the town of Ipswich, including protection to nearly 4,000 residential and commercial properties. As such, Ipswich Borough Council's Core Strategy is dependent on its delivery. The concrete base is now complete and the new gate is due for delivery in October 2017.
