IM Properties is bringing forward plans for a well-designed and highly sustainable new business park north of the A14 at Thrapston.

Located close to Junction 13, the 120 acre site is in a prime location to meet the significant demand for new employment space in this part of Northamptonshire – helping to retain existing businesses, attract new employers to the area, and support a more resilient local economy.

It has the potential to accommodate up to 2,100 jobs across a range of sectors, including manufacturing, light industry and logistics, which plays an important role in all of our lives and helps other industries to function.

Consulting local people

At the end of 2021, we presented our vision to the local community and asked for feedback on the main themes driving our approach.

In February and March 2022, we presented our draft plans to the community, explained how the feedback we received helped inform our draft plans, and asked for further feedback to inform our planning application.

While we draw on our own comprehensive experience and the specialist insight of our professional team, we know we can achieve a better outcome by working with local communities.

Details of our consultations can be found in the Statement of Local Engagement submitted with our planning application.
