The 8 new developments coming to Ipswich
IPSWICH is expanding at a rapid pace.
As houses go up and new residents move to the city, developments of all kinds are underway in response to Ipswich’s swelling population.
Here’s just a few of the new developments approved by Ipswich City Council over the past year.
Medical centre in CBD
APPROVAL has been granted to turn car parks in the Ipswich CBD into a new medical centre.

136-place child care centre, swim school
APPROVAL has been granted to establish a child care centre and a swim school in a housing estate in Collingwood Park.
The development application, submitted on behalf of Merkara Pty Ltd and Magnolia 5 Pty Ltd, has been given the green light by Ipswich City Council.
Child care centre in estate
A LARGE child care centre will be built in a South Ripley estate, after approval was granted by Ipswich City Council more than a year after an application was submitted.
