The 2001 census recorded the population of Towcester as 8,856. Since then rapid expansion has taken place, with estimates that the population will reach around 20,000 by 2020.

Where this has not occurred, and workers have be injured due to no fault of their own, then an injury claim in Towcester for compensation can be made.
