Business Incentive Scheme

Northampton Alive

Northampton Borough Council launched its Business Incentive Scheme (BIS) in 2014 to assist new and existing businesses to support the growth of the local economy and create jobs.

The main objectives of the BIS are to:

 

Bullet
Improve the trading environment through reducing the number of empty retail units in the town centre  and  industrial units outside of the Enterprise Zone but within the boundaries of Northampton
Bullet
Improve the retail offer and appearance of the town centre to attract more shoppers, making it a choice of destination
Bullet
Help to create employment opportunities and to bring in private sector investment

 

The BIS offers grants to businesses interested in:

 

Bullet
Taking on a vacant unit,
Bullet
Extending retail floor area of existing business premises, and
Bullet
Improving shop frontages.

With four streams of funding available, we are able to support the ambitions of both new and established businesses.
