Thriving Self Storage In Corby

Corby lies to the north of Northamptonshire and is the 11th smallest local authority in the UK, it covers 31 square miles and is situated in the heart of England with excellent road links via the A14 to the M1, M6 and A1, together with a direct passenger rail service to London.  Corby has been named as the fastest growing borough outside of London, with a population (standing at 72,200 in 2019 according to Nomis) which is expected to continue increasing as the borough continues to grow. You can find a great story here written in the economist outlining how Corby became England’s fastest-growing town where commuters and immigrants have swelled the population by a third

Corby History
The town was at one time known locally as “Little Scotland” due to the large number of Scottish workers who came to Corby for its steelworks. In 1950, Corby was designated a New Town with William Holford as its architect. By 1951, he prepared the development plan with a car-friendly layout and many areas of open space and woodland.
In 1980, British Steel decided to close the steel works and the effect was devastating on Corby with 6,000 people being made redundant. Massive lobbying of Westminster and Europe by Councillors and residents ensured that Corby did not die. The decision was made to pull the old works down as quickly as possible to show the commitment to redevelopment. Within 15 months of the closure, 15,000 new jobs were created by 1,500 new businesses occupying 1.5 million square feet of new business units

Corby Regeneration
Recently, Corby has undergone a large regeneration process with the opening of Corby railway station and Corby International Pool in 2009 and the Corby Cube building opening in. A second wave of planned development began when the council and Catalyst Corby, a public-private regeneration company, unveiled a plan to double the town’s population by 2030. An advertising campaign encouraged the capital’s residents to move to “North Londonshire”.
Over the period to 2030, Corby plans to be recognised in providing opportunities for its growing population through ambitious housing growth and the provision of diverse modern education, health, and cultural facilities. Emphasis will be placed on digital skills, developing smart and innovative technologies, the green economy, and future creative and diversified industries. It will place Corby town centre at its heart to maximise opportunities through innovative regeneration of space. The town centre will be a focal point for surrounding residential communities and will be accessible, visible, and signposted.
