About the Business Incentive Scheme (BIS)

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:

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
Improve the retail offer and appearance of the town centre to attract more shoppers, making it a choice of destination
Help to create employment opportunities and to bring in private sector investment
