Corby and Kettering Council are currently experiencing a backlog of housing application assessments.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused and are working hard to address the issue.

Unfortunately, due to the unprecedented circumstances that we are all currently facing, normal council services will inevitably be affected.  Our focus is the well-being of our customers and employees and supporting the wider community, so we will be prioritising critical functions and changing some working practices to protect customers and employees as much as we can. 

Following Government guidance in relation to Coronavirus, our face to face customer service centres have closed. All contact with the Housing Options Teams should be via telephone, online messages and emails for the foreseeable future. You can find details of these on our individual websites. If you need to submit documents to the Council, please send these to us via email or post. 

All Keyways landlords are now advertising properties when available.  Viewing and sign up measures have been put in place to ensure social distancing is adhered to and to keep customers and staff safe.  Please refer to our new Covid 19 information page for further details.  Services are being continually reviewed as and when further Government guidance is issued.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
