Regeneration for troubled area of Corby

43 outdated flats have been replaced with 36 new homes in an area of Corby.

The regeneration in Canada Square has also seen a disused pub and commercial spaces redeveloped.

18 of the new properties are council homes and there`s also a new community area.

This latest regeneration project has been undertaken by Corby Borough Council in partnership with the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA), Lodge Park Partnership Homes Ltd and ASRA Housing Group.

This latest project had been made possible by both CBC and Asra investing in their building programmes, alongside funding support from the HCA of nearly £1.5m to deliver these and other homes on the old Finland Way, Boston Close, Leighton Road and Willow Brook Road sites.

Corby Borough Council s Lead Member for Housing, said:

 Canada Square was highlighted as an area within the Borough in need of investment and is a further example of the Council s commitment to growth and regeneration, as already seen in other areas of the borough.

 We are very pleased to finally be in a position where a completion ceremony can take place. This is a real improvement for our residents and we are proud to be one of the few councils still building much needed and in demand council properties .

Michael David of the Homes and Communities Agency, said:

 We are particularly pleased to see the Canada Square development come to completion. Not only because the HCA have funded units as part of our AHP, but, because we are also pleased to see the wider scheme achieving such fantastic regeneration in this area of Corby.

Spokesperson for Lodge Park, said:

 Lodge Park have been delighted to support the councils initiative for regeneration at Canada Square, and to be part of this new Development scheme. We look forward to working together with all at the Housing Team in the near future.

Spokesperson for Asra, said:

 Asra are one of the largest housing associations within the East Midlands, and we are honoured to work so closely with Corby Borough Council as their regeneration partner at Canada Square
