Former vacant office space in Corby Town Centre has been transformed into spacious and modern new flats, bringing life back into the dormant space in Cardigan House.
Corby Borough Council in partnership with the Town Centre Management identified the space above the shops in Spencer Court, which had been vacant for the best part of 7 years, and has now created five 1 bed and one 2 bed flats in its place.
Funding the work from Right to Buy receipts, Corby Borough Council has now added these properties to their housing portfolio and have tenants already lined-up to move straight in and make it their home.
Work on the flats started late 2016 and was completed last week. The Mayor of Corby, Cllr Julie Riley, officially marked the completion by cutting the ribbon at a ceremony held yesterday (Monday 10th April 2017).
After taking a look around the properties, the Mayor of Corby, Cllr Julie Riley, said:
‘These new homes are a great use of what was old office space that had sat empty for a long time. Not only will they bring further life back into the Town Centre but they will also create further much needed affordable housing for local people in the Borough.
‘We wish those residents that move in to these properties many happy years in their new home’
