In light of the Government’s recent announcement that as of the 5th January the country will be entering into a national lockdown, Corby Borough Council would like to assure residents that services will continue to run, with the exception of the majority of leisure facilities which will remain closed.
Following guidance from the Government, Corby Borough Council’s leisure facilities including Corby East Midlands International Pool and Lodge Park Sports Centre, Priors Hall Golf Course and West Glebe Pavilion will be closed throughout lockdown. This will include all outdoor gyms, astro-turf and outdoor Multi Use Games Areas. Our Leisure teams are currently working on providing virtual classes where possible for leisure members, details and links will be shared.
We will freeze memberships and not collect again until a month after we reopen.
Our Parks and Play areas will remain open throughout the borough, notices will be up covering social distancing measures and reinforcing the rules that you should only visit the parks to exercise with your household (or support bubble) and that this should be limited to once per day. We would remind visitors to ensure they are adhering to these measures and that they are also not travelling outside of their local area.
East Carlton Country Pak Café will remain open for takeaways only.
The Corby Cube will remain closed during this time, including the One Stop Shop, however we will continue to operate our switchboard from 9am - 5pm, Monday – Friday. You can also e-mail your enquiry and will find a list of contacts by clicking here.
For customers wishing to return documents to the Council, envelopes can be posted at our Deene House offices at New Post Office Square. The post box is next to the Councils main entrance, which can be found in between the Lakelands café and the Indoor Market.
Corby and Kettering Borough Council’s Shared Street Scene Service are still out providing a refuse collection service as normal.
We are asking residents to please ensure they double bag any waste containing tissues etc. and leave aside for at least 72 hours before placing it into your general waste wheelie bin.
The Household Waste and Recycling Centres are managed by Northamptonshire County Council. For more information please visit their website using this link
We would ask residents to please bear with us during this unprecedented time as the speed of response may be slower than usual due to remote working and the need to prioritise service requests. We are working hard to ensure that there are no disruption to services whilst ensuring our staff and customers are safe.
