Northamptonshire has strong ambitions to be a leading area for innovation, business growth, and green technologies, to attract private sector investment and to enhance the special environmental, built and rural qualities and local heritage.
Northamptonshire is a leading area for food and drink manufacturing and supply and is home to world-leading brands including Alpro, Weetabix, Coca Cola, Schweppes and Carlsberg.
In October 2011 the Northamptonshire Arc plan was created - a locally developed spatial concept covering the whole county. It represents an integrated approach to economic development, the environment and connectivity and is one of the first concepts of its type in the country. It has been adopted by the council to help guide its investment activities and has secured wider support from other local partners.
