Northampton Borough Council - About Us

Northampton is a growing town with growing ambitions. Our town is a place with a fantastic history and heritage - it is also a place of growth and opportunity for the future.

We have much to be proud of. Our town is one of the largest in the country and with a great university, a nationally-important theatre, three successful sporting teams and evidence of real business confidence, we are fast becoming a significant regional hub.

As a place to live: Northampton boasts a huge number of parks and open spaces, making every home only a short walk from somewhere to relax. Our town centre is primed for significant development with plans in place to create a new £350 million shopping centre to compliment our historic Market Square and range of niche and high street shops.

As a place to work: Northampton is home to businesses of all sizes, including the UK headquarters of major international companies such as Carlsberg UK and Barclaycard. Recent research has shown that Northampton has more people in employment and is performing better during the recession than most other large towns and cities in the region.
