Corby is a town and borough found within the ceremonial County of Northamptonshire, in the central region of England. The town is situated approximately 23 miles (37 km) north-east of the county town of Northampton, whilst the wider borough borders the Borough of Kettering, the District of East Northamptonshire, the District of Harborough and the unitary authority County of Rutland.
The town once had a significant increase in population due to an influx of migrant workers from Scotland who came to the town to work in the steelworks and this led to Corby gaining the nickname of ‘little Scotland’. Today however, the steelworks is no longer a significant employer or as much of a draw to migrant workers, but Corby is once again enjoying significant population growth. In fact, figures released in March 2010 revealed that Corby has the fastest growing population not only in Northamptonshire but also in the whole of England.
The Population Of Corby
According to census data from 2011, Corby now has a population of around 61,600 and is rapidly increasing. A major part of the reason for this increase is the work of Corby’s urban regeneration company, the North Northants Development Company which has now a broader remit to cover a larger section of the county as well as Corby itself.
This company has implemented and worked on a number of regeneration projects which have worked wonders for the town in attracting both investment and new residents. This means that the economy is strengthening and general activity in the town is also improving, but there are also some more negative impacts of the quickly rising population. These include the fact that the accident rate also increases with the increase in population, and so we will now discuss personal injury claims Corby for residents.
