Council to spend £500,000 on traveller sites

Almost £500,000 pounds will be spent creating new travellers' sites and improving existing pitches in Corby.

Corby Council was awarded 475,000 as part of the 2009-10 Gypsy and Traveller Site Grant in order for them to refurbish four pitches and provide four new ones at the Phoenix Park site in Gretton Brooke Road.

The funding is awarded to councils and housing associations to provide new social rented sites and to help pay for the refurbishment of existing sites for travellers, new age travellers and travelling show people. Corby was one of just two councils in the East Midlands to be awarded the grants.
