Plans to improve the Norwich Road area of Ipswich went on display for the first time this week - we asked our readers what they thought would improve the road.

On Wednesday a consultation was held for a new project called Destination Norwich Road - the idea behind the scheme is to change public perception of the area.

Ideas being looked at are murals, planters and new signs along the road to promote the area.

Online our readers shared their suggestions on how to improve the road, many included concerns about parking.

A new website listing retailers and upcoming events on the street is expected to be live within two to three weeks.

Other changes to the street’s appearance are expected to take a few months, making the project a longer term ambition. Those behind the plans believe that if the project is successful in Norwich Road then it may be spread out to other, similar areas of Suffolk.
