Future Developments

Oakley Vale is a burgeoning community, with amenities and infrastructures already in place for those looking for a new home in Corby. Whether it’s a local pub, shops, nursery or vet practice, Oakley Vale has it all.

But it doesn’t stop there – the whole region is expecting continuing growth and the addition of new exciting amenities, local services and areas of natural beauty. This includes Oakley Vale, where the final two phases of development are beginning to take shape.

You can take a look at the currently available properties in Oakley Vale via our ‘Houses for Sale’ section – showing houses currently available at the fantastic Lyveden Fields and Oakley Rise development phases.

Latest developments…

The design code for the final two phases of Oakley Vale (Phases 8 and 9) has been discussed with the new North Northamptonshire Council – and we’re excited to announce that Savills are now marketing Phase 8 which includes 270 new homes.

Phase 8 is situated at the end of Bennett Road and Chepstow Road (take a look at our Masterplan page for a visual view!). It will include a new Primary School on land to be gifted by Great Oakley, and will provide road access and services that will open up the new local centre. You will recall that you, the community, gave some fantastic feedback on what you would like to see in this new local centre and we can’t wait to see the result.

We can also reveal that in January, eleven housebuilders made formal proposals to purchase Phase 8, and there have been some high-quality proposals! A shortlist of the preferred developer partners has been created and we understand a final decision will be made this month. Next steps will see the developers enter into a contract, followed by a reserved matters planning application to be considered later this year by North Northamptonshire Council. If this is approved, building work should start in early 2023!

To ensure the high design quality of this next phase, Great Oakley has retained the nationally renowned architecture practice Adam Architecture – this will no doubt ensure an exciting, high-quality development.

More details on Phase 8 are set to follow shortly once a developer partner has been selected. So keep an eye on this page for further updates or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

An up-and-coming town

The additional housing at Oakley Vale will help to meet Corby’s growing housing needs and support the area’s ambition for growth. It will increase local employment, including during the construction stage; provide new facilities to meet local needs; and help to meet the demand for primary school places in the area. It will also provide generous formal and informal open space for residents and the local community to enjoy, as well as enhancing biodiversity through the creation of a range of new and improved habitats.
