Our fast growing creative and digital economy

The further development of the designated Cultural Quarter remains a key priority as part of the recently agreed Town Centre masterplan and the redevelopment of the Vulcan Works is designed to take this forward.

Vulcan Works sits within the boundary of the Northampton Waterside Enterprise Zone and the redevelopment will provide new business space, particularly for SME’s focused on the creative & digital sector. Northampton has a competitive advantage within this sector which would assist businesses to develop and grow; in the process, create new employment opportunities for people in the local area.

Digital Northants is a collaboration between local digital businesses, the University of Northampton and local councils designed to support digital innovation in Northamptonshire growing the digital economy in Northamptonshire.
