Residents are being asked to have their say and provide feedback on the proposed plans for pedestrian and cycle routes between Corby town centre and train station.

The Town Centre to Train Station link road and Smart and Connected Corby are two of the projects within the Corby Towns Fund which North Northamptonshire Council (NNC) was awarded £19.9m from Government to deliver. 

The projects are in the early stages and concept designs were drafted as part of the feasibility study. Now NNC is asking residents and businesses to share their thoughts and provide feedback on the plans, before further engagement and consultation takes place later in the project.

From Friday 2 September to Friday 30 September, information boards will be on display at the Corby Cube and there will also be staffed events, where residents can speak to staff and ask questions, between 10am and 4pm on:

  • Monday 5 September
  • Tuesday 13 September 
  • Wednesday 21 September 
  • Thursday 29 September

For those unable to attend, feedback can be provided through the dedicated Corby Towns Fund website from 2 September.

We are now at a point in this exciting project where we can work with residents and local businesses to shape the plans. Initial designs will be on display in the Cube throughout September and we welcome comments from the public.
This initial engagement will be followed by further engagement as the project progresses. We are very much at the start of a process which will include regular involvement from the public.
Cllr David Brackenbury, the council’s Executive Member for Growth and Regeneration
The aim of the Towns Fund is to drive the regeneration of Corby and deliver long term economic growth for the town. We have started on initial plans for the projects the fund must be spent on, but we want to hear from those that will be directly impacted by these projects. 

I would encourage everyone to come and see the initial plans on display and have your say. Alternatively, you can give feedback via the Corby Towns Fund website.
Cllr Jason Smithers, Leader of the Council

£19.9m of funding has been secured for, and must be used on, four NNC projects - a new Sixth Form Centre, a multi-use building, Corby Town-Station link and Smart and Connected Corby.

More information on the projects can be found on the Corby Towns Fund website.
