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.

Please note that due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, Keyways may not have properties to advertise each week, therefore, if you are in a position to move home, we recommend that you login to your account weekly to ascertain what properties are 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.



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. 

Property adverts are currently suspended for Wellingborough and no bidding will take place, however, this may change soon and it is important that you continue to check the Keyways website weekly.

Services are being continually reviewed as and when further Government guidance is issued.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
