Smaller boutique shop spaces

Corby has regenerated the town centre using private funding but in doing so there are only huge shop spaces with rents to match. Small independent traders cannot compete. We could use some of this funding to create some smaller ‘back street’ type shop/cafe spaces.

Corby would also benefit from regeneration in the beautiful woodland. We need to open up these woods, invite cyclists and walkers to enjoy them rather than being fearful to walk through them.
Corby needs additional schools, doctors and healthcare facilities to meet the demand that comes with the increase in housing.

  1. There needs to be some agreement to reduce the business rates on small shops this will have to come from central government along with the owners of the town centre.

    The current indoor market could be resited to along the High Street so all the shops are much more accessible. The site where the current indoor market is could be repurposed free restaurants or a meeting for parents to meet and socialise. This could have some coffee area for the mothers to sit and a safe area for the babies to play with perhaps toys and a ball pool. This then could provide employment for childcare specialists to help out with this.
