Proposals for a new neighbourhood at West Corby are being promoted by The Great Oakley and Rockingham Castle Estates alongside experienced house builders Barratt Developments and Taylor Wimpey. The proposals aim to deliver at least 4,500 new homes over the next 15 years, supported by new employment, local shops, schools, open space and investment in the local road network. The promoters have brought together an experienced team of designers and consultants to develop the design proposals.

The site is identified to deliver a strategic new development as part of the North Northamptonshire Joint Core Strategy, the planning document which maps out growth in Corby, Wellingborough, Kettering and East Northamptonshire to 2031. This has been reviewed by a Government Inspector who increased the allocation from 4,000 to 4,500.

The West Corby promoters are working together to draw up plans for an outline planning application, which will set out a master plan for the area, showing how new houses, schools, community facilities and employment land can be delivered on the site. This has now been submitted to Corby Borough Concil for their approval and you can find out more about that here.
