The Kintampo Municipal, one of the 22 districts in the Brong Ahafo Region, was created in 1988 by Legislative Instrument 1480 sequel to the Government’s decentralisation programme with Kintampo as its capital.
It is located between latitudes 8º45’N and 7º45’N and Longitudes 1º20’W and 2°1’E and shares boundaries with five districts in the Country:, namely; Central Gonja District to the North; Bole District to the West; East Gonja District to the North-East (all in the Northern Region); Kintampo South District to the South; and Pru District to the South- East (all in the Brong Ahafo Region). The Municipal Capital, Kintampo, is about 130KM away by road from the regional capital and lies east of the BAR Capital, Sunyani. The Municipal has a surface area of about 5,108km², thus occupying a land area of about 12.9% of the total land area of BAR (39,557km²).
In terms of location and size, the Municipal is strategically located at the centre of Ghana and serves as a transit point between the northern and southern sectors of the country. It is hoped that the construction of the Kunsu- Ntankro- Prang- Kintampo- Wa roads will further open and enhance vehicular traffic on these roads as well as interaction between the southern and northern parts of Ghana.
