Facilitating economic growth through the Waterside Enterprise Zone.
Whether you’re a developer interested in one of the prime waterside sites, or a growing business looking for a new home, Northampton Waterside could match your ambitions.
Waterside covers 120 hectares of brownfield land along the River Nene, and is more than a standard development site. It’s a diverse business district, home to a booming commercial community in the centre of the country.
There are over 20 different sites in the zone, all offering something different, including:
- Business rate relief
- Simplified planning process: Any development proposal within the Enterprise Zone boundary will benefit from a quicker and simpler planning process. Many sites are covered by a Local Development Order, meaning there are permitted development rights for certain types of commercial buildings in the area.
- Infrastructure investment: Public sector partners are investing in the infrastructure to support success. This includes an iconic new railway station, which is located in the centre of the zone.
- Superfast Broadband
