UQ|UP visiting Ipswich

Ipswich City Council (ICC) is working to transform the Ipswich CBD. Ipswich is located in South East Queensland, 40 kilometres west of Brisbane and has a population of 232,000 inhabitants. It is a heritage city.

The local government has started a very ambitious project of renovating the CBD, creating a new precinct to attract new businesses and retail. The first building is the new building for ICC. It is an impressive, state-of-the-art building that combines all ICC departments in one single location. The building has a dedicated floor for community events. It opened in July 2021.

Well done ICC!

Mr Peter Tabulo, from ICC, invited UQ|UP members and the UQ Planning Education Advisory Board to visit the new facilities.
