A plan from Corby Borough Council to build 18 homes on Oakley Vale has been met by complaints. Many comments have been received on an online application about plans to develop homes near Cheltenham Road.

A number of the comments touch on problems emergency services have previously had in reaching addresses in the area, contending that the development will add to the problem.

CBC's application is for a mix of flats and two and three bedroom houses. MP for Corby Tom Pursglove has met with some of the residents and has also voiced opposition to the plan.

Meanwhile the borough council along with partners have marked the completion of 26 new affordable homes on the Beanfield estate.

The development's taken place on the former site of the Beanfield School off Glastonbury Road. CBC say the properties - two bedroom bungalows - will help meet the needs of Corby's older residents.

The local authority say they have now completed 210 new builds since 2010.
