Cycle paths

There’s no cycle path network around Corby to allow people to cycle to work. A few strategic cycle paths would cuts cars on the roads and improve people’s lives and reduce road accidents. People want to cycle around Corby but with the current infrastructure it’s simply too dangerous for many people to consider.

Provision for Young People

Training Provision in Corby for Young unemployed people. At the moment we only have one training provider who will provide employability skills to NEET’s. CKW offer training to young people with additional learning needs through their LEAP programme. However the programme is full and there isn’t anything else that young people can access.

Better disabled access

The town centre shopping area pavements are dated and uneven this is not suitable for physically disabled and visually impaired as is a major trip hazard. Making it safer may encourage people to use local shops safely instead of shopping online.

HOSPITAL NEEDED IN CORBY

Corby desperately needs its own hospital. Corby has expanded over the last 40 years since the closure of the steel works yet 40 years later we still don’t have our own hospital. Kettering General Hospital is overflowing and cannot cope with the demands put on it so the creation of a new Corby hospital would […]

POLICE STATION NEEDED IN CORBY

Corby would benefit from having a new police station and police officers assigned to local areas in and around Corby and the villages. In my opinion Real crime is increasing (recorded crime is just minipulation of real crime as so many crimes are only assigned as incidents to lower recorded crime figures)!!!!!!

General Improvements

I realise this isn’t particularly ambitious but I would like to see Corby become visually more welcoming. Signs on all the major roads coming into town saying welcome, what facilities are available (theatre, cinema, pool, other leisure activities etc). Make more use of the woodland, encourage young people take part in cleaning up the woods, […]

All new houses, public buildings etc should be built with good insulation, triple glazing and non-fossil fuel heating etc. Reduce parking charges for electric/hybrid vehicles and installing more charging points. Make […]

Corby already has a small skateboarding training area it would be good to increase this so that by 2024 the town could attract people to come and learn skateboarding and potentially be part of Olympic games.

Youth services

A proper youth centre, not a 2hrs on a Thursday night job, but a purpose built/converted building with not just stuff to do but support services, access to help with education that’s outside of the school setting, would be a great place to have volunteers who are carpenters/computer programmer/mechanics and so on that could come […]

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 […]

leisure activities

the town centre lacks choice in places to eat and drink and socialise, activities such as climbing – play centre and bowling alley / sports bar would create jobs and provide a draw into the town centre. There are more than enough empty shops in the high street that could support bars and restaurant’s and […]

Car Parking

Corby town centre has made fantastic improvements on it’s amenities and appearance over the last decade. However, the land adjacent to the now defunct TJ Hughes building, is a distinct eyesore with uneven pathways/roads and unregulated car parking. Could this area be repurposed to make it more useful, attractive and heavily enforce parking restrictions on […]
