Businesses invited to find out more about proposed Upper Orwell Crossings

On Tuesday 5th June, the East of England Co-op will be hosting Ipswich and Suffolk Business Club members for a special business briefing to learn more about the opportunities the proposed Upper Orwell Crossings will bring to the town.

The proposed crossings are likely to be the biggest and most significant change to the landscape of Ipswich since the Orwell Bridge opened in April 1982.

The event will include a presentation of the current proposals from Suzanne Black, Suffolk County Council’s project manager for the Upper Orwell Crossings, discussion and debate on the issues arising from the new development as well as an opportunity to network with other business owners.

This event, which will be held at East of England Co-op’s headquarters at Wherstead Park from 6pm – 8pm, is open to businesses owners who wish to learn more about the proposed Upper Orwell Crossings as well as find out more about the Ipswich and Suffolk Business Club.

Luke Morris, Chair of Ipswich Suffolk Business Club, says: “Over the next few years, the Upper Orwell Crossings are likely to have a huge impact on Ipswich and the surrounding areas. This event will help identify the opportunities and debate the issues which are at the heart of the business community.”

The Upper Orwell Crossing event is free to attend but places must be confirmed in advance by emailing:

Ipswich Suffolk Business Club’s membership is made up of Suffolk’s business owners, leaders and key decision makers from a broad spectrum of industry sectors. They share the common goal of promoting business growth, inward investment and employment in the county.

The annual programme of events is supported by venue hosts Milsoms at Kesgrave Hall, Greene King and Genesis PR.
