Strategic projects, growth and regeneration
Corby Towns Fund
North Northamptonshire Council was awarded £19.9 million through the Town Fund in June 2021.
The funds will be used on 4 projects, designed to encourage economic growth in the local area.
Sixth form college at Chisholm House
Once open in September 2023, the 40,000 square foot Corby Sixth Form will be run by the Bedford College group, offering a wide range of A-Level subjects for 16 to 18 years olds. The building will be carbon neutral using the latest innovative technologies.
The project will see the mainly unused lower floors of Grosvenor House renovated for this scheme. Giving a permanent new home to arts and culture venue with a community focus. It will support community groups and third sector uses, including charities and voluntary groups, to help deliver essential services.
Corby station links
This will improve the public realm and provide an attractive and safe pedestrian and cycle connections between the town centre, Tresham College and the train station along Oakley Road, promoting active travel and helping to reduce congestion and emissions across Corby.
Smart and Connected Corby
This project seeks to establish Corby as a smart and green town centre through harnessing connected and clean technologies. A network of sensors from the town centre to the station will capture journeys by all modes, such as pedestrians, cyclists, cars and vans. The data captured will enable evaluation of interventions and projects in the area.
More details about the Corby Towns Fund and the individual projects can be found on the dedicated Corby Towns Fund website.
