Plans for growth

Superfast broadband

We’re working in partnership with Superfast Northamptonshire to enable the rollout of Superfast Broadband to businesses and residents within the district.

Local enterprise partnership

We fall within the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP). Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) replace regional development agencies and are part of the Government's aim to stimulate local economies and boost private sector growth. The LEP links local authorities and businesses in:

  • South Northamptonshire
  • Milton Keynes
  • Northampton
  • Parts of Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Oxfordshire

SEMLEP’s objective is to boost the area’s economic performance and achieve strong, sustainable growth across the South East Midlands. It has identified four showcase sectors, which the area demonstrates particular strengths in and is targeting these as having the greatest potential to grow:

  • Manufacturing and advanced technology
  • Logistics and supply chain
  • High performance technology
  • Culture and creative
