Description

Northamptonshire has one of the fastest growing populations in the country, and as such needs to provide sufficient housing and jobs to meet this need. Our Strategic Economic Plan outlines our ambition to create an additional 37,000 new homes and 32,500 new jobs by 2021. This growth in both housing and jobs needs to be sustainable with supporting infrastructure to accommodate growth.

NEP is therefore commissioning an assessment of both passenger and freight connectivity and capacity against projected growth, and in particular an assessment of the forthcoming East Midlands, West Midlands & Chilterns and West Coast Route Strategies and identify any potential opportunities, constraints or gaps.

This study will need to sit within the context of the existing and agreed plans for transport identified within the Northamptonshire Arc and the Northamptonshire Transport Plan. The main objective and desired outcome of the study is that will help to inform local partners of any rail connectivity and capacity issues to feed into emerging rail investment programmes.
