Corby : New Town Planning and Imbalanced Development
The object of this paper is to present an anatomy of the imbalanced development of Corby in the post-war period.The consequences of this imbalanced development, which caused a small Northamptonshire village to grow into a major steel town, are now reflected in the grim economic and social problems of Corby following on from the closure of major sections of the steel works. The paper focusses, in particular, on the role of planning in this failure. It is argued that the principle of balance which has at the heart of the New Town ideology found no place in the development of Corby New Town. Indeed, it is shown that the New Town status itself was used in future accentuating the regional and structural imbalance represented in Corby - as striking contrast with the common view of the role of New Towns. The paper concludes by drawing out the policy implications of this planning failure.
