In Northamptonshire the population is rising, how can the economy prepare for expansion and remain sustainable for future generations?
Northamptonshire is set for major population growth in the run up to 2020, according to figures released by the Office of National Statistics. Three of the 20 UK hotspots projected to see the fastest population growth are in the county, including Corby, Northampton and Kettering.
With this in mind, it is vital that we have the necessary provision in place to support businesses and jobs and ensure maximum economic growth alongside population development.
Northamptonshire Enterprise Partnership (NEP) is tasked with the role of helping to do just that. Its approach is focused around three key sectors that have a particularly strong skills base and proposition: high performance technologies (HPT), logistics and the county's visitor economy.
