North Kesteven has a thriving and dynamic economy with the highest skilled workforce in Lincolnshire and statistically full employment. We are proud of our rural heritage and food and farming continues to play a big part in our growth story. Manufacturing and innovation is important to the district, with established centres in Greater Lincoln and Sleaford, while the presence of the RAF at Cranwell and Waddington provides a unique source of diversity and inspiration for the local economy.
North Kesteven is committed to supporting economic growth in the district and taking a proactive role in delivering jobs, regeneration and driving investment in infrastructure including transport.
We have over 10 ha of allocated, serviced employment land for development and we work proactively with local landowners and agents to ensure an adequate supply of well connected strategics sites. We have a focussed spatial strategy supporting business hubs and corridors in three key locations.
North Kesteven’s economy is dynamic and diverse. Small and micro business predominate with larger businesses and their supply chains operating and servicing key sectors.
North Kesteven District Council is part of the Midlands Engine, a body that brings together the Council operating in the area stretching from the Black Country eastwards to the Lincolnshire Coast together with delivery groups, educational establishments and other.
