Proposals to build a new multi-storey car park on Crown Street in Ipswich are set to get the final go-ahead from borough planners next week.

That should mean work on the building will start next month – and it should be open for business early in the new year.

Meanwhile the borough is set to allow temporary parking to remain on the site of the former St Peter’s Warehouse at the entrance to the Waterfront for an extra year.

That should help to ease the reduction in the number of parking spaces caused by the closure of the surface park in Crown Street while the new car park is built.

The borough’s planning and development committee is due to discuss the applications next Wednesday – and planning officers are recommending both are approved.

The new Crown Street multi-storey park will only cover part of the site of the existing car park and will have 546 spaces as opposed to the 217 at present – it could be extended in future years if it is not found to be large enough.

The former multi-storey there was demolished in 2010.
