Plans to create a new parish council for the Priors Hall area of Corby won't go forward for the time being.

It was the recommendation of a report Corby borough councillors saw on Tuesday ( Apr 10 )  which said a consultation with residents in that area and Weldon saw very poor returns.

Originally some residents had put forward a petition calling for the new area to have its own parish seperate from Weldon.

However CBC officials say the low interest from all residents means the plans won't go any further for the moment - but they have not ruled out returning to them in the future.
