Northamptonshire Arc

The Northamptonshire Arc is 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.

What is the Northamptonshire Arc?

The Northamptonshire Arc provides the strategic context for future plans and investment in areas such as:

  • planning
  • economic development
  • broadband
  • transport
  • waste
  • education
  • health

It has been adopted by the council to help guide its investment activities and has secured wider support from other local partners. It is also being used to help secure private sector and central government investment and attract businesses and jobs into the area .

It is underpinned by the pursuit of three high level outcomes:

  • Transformed connectivity
  • A naturally resilient and low carbon Northamptonshire
  • A stronger and greener economy
