Living and working in Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire is at the very heart of England. The county is strategically positioned to take advantage of excellent road and rail links:

  • Less than an hour from both London and Birmingham by train
  • Located on the M1 halfway between London and Nottingham

Living

Our county is steeped in history and home to the some of the most beautiful countryside in England. Stately homes, historic villages and a network of working canals contribute to Northamptonshire's renowned heritage while our market towns bring a more vibrant flavour.

We have a growing population and have responded to their housing needs with a range of options.

Living and working here means your choices range from village life in historic stone cottages and affordable Victorian terraces in the towns right through to minimalist town centre apartments and the Upton development in Northampton, one of the UK’s largest developments of eco-homes.

Ambitious plans

Working with Northamptonshire County Council not only means you’ll be joining us on our improvement journey for children’s services - you’ll also be working for a key partner in the county’s prosperity agenda which will see a host of new and exciting developments for the county.

With an array of major regeneration projects underway, Northampton town centre is being transformed. This includes a £3million makeover of our main shopping centre in Northampton, a £20 million redevelopment of our train station and a £7million project to bring a new bus interchange to the town.

Alongside these infrastructure projects, the town has seen the development of a cultural quarter, a creative cluster in the town centre that puts creative industries at the heart of our regeneration agenda.

2015 will highlight Northamptonshire as a forward thinking and ambitious county that’s a great place to live and work.
