Help for Developers


Inclusionary zoning requirements

Ipswich encourages developers to include affordable units in their plans. To give you greater flexibility in meeting the inclusionary zoning requirements, you have a choice of including one or more affordable units in the project or making a payment to the Affordable Housing Trust Fund.


If you are the owner of an existing multifamily building, you may be eligible to receive a payment in exchange for a permanent affordability restriction on one or more of the apartments or condos.

Development support

If you are a developer with a Comprehensive Permit / 40B project in mind, you can expect to receive proactive collaboration from everyone in the Planning Department and affordable housing staff.

Please see the Ipswich Zoning Bylaws for more information.
