Business and investment in Rutland

What makes Rutland a great place for businesses and investment, and information about business support services

Rutland ranks as one of the most popular places to live in the country, due to its:

  • low crime rates

  • high life expectancy

  • high levels of academic achievement and attainment

  • active and enriched communities

This makes Rutland particularly attractive to smaller, niche and high value businesses.

We are within reasonable distance to the major growth cities of:

  • Cambridge

  • Peterborough

  • Nottingham

  • Leicester

There are over 1,900 businesses in the county. Our manufacturing and service sectors have seen strong growth.

Rutland benefits from good transport connectivity, served by:

  • rail links to Stansted and Birmingham

  • easy connections to the A1, A47 and the A606

Around 95% of the county has access to Superfast Broadband.
