'Open for Business' Event 2016

One hundred and ninety local businesses attended the 'Open for Business' event, which was the brainchild of the Council Leader, Cllr Ian McCord, as an opportunity to thank them for choosing to operate their businesses within the district. The event, which took place at Towcester Racecourse on Tuesday, 27 September 2016, included talks from senior leaders about how we want to develop our relationship with local businesses to ensure continuing economic success for all.

Cllr McCord said: "We all know that South Northants is a great place to live and work, and that we have attracted a number of fantastic businesses.

"South Northamptonshire Council is 'open for business' - we recognise the importance you play in creating long term prosperity and I want to help if we can, or at least not stand in the way.

"We have a South Northamptonshire five year business strategy and annual business plan. Within that we have objectives to strengthen the local economy and to secure its long term vitality we need to increase our engagement with the business community."
