UNIVERSITY Campus Suffolk (UCS) leaders met today to mark the signing of a legal agreement which will give the project the go ahead.
Representatives from UCS, the East of England Development Agency (EEDA), Ipswich Borough Council, Suffolk College and Suffolk County Council were at the Salthouse Harbour Hotel at Ipswich Waterfront to celebrate their formal working relationship.
The agreement between the organisations due to be made legally binding in the next few weeks, will release funds into the project and make land transfers between the organisations official.
Professor Bob Anderson, Chief Executive Officer at UCS, said: “We are very pleased to be close to the end of a very long but necessary process which will align all of the funding streams and land ownership matters.
