The Tees Valley – made up of the five boroughs of Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton-on-Tees – stands ready to make its mark on the world once again. From Teesside Airport in the west to Teesworks in the east, and everything in between, we’re developing the skills, infrastructure and communities that will transform our region.
The Tees Valley Combined Authority has made huge progress since its creation five years ago, taking on devolved responsibilities from Government. We are now driving forward the redevelopment of our transport network; revitalising training and education; boosting our businesses; championing culture, tourism, and supporting our boroughs in improving our towns and communities.
These powers are backed up by substantial funding, with a ten-year Investment Plan outlining how £588million of spending will support the creation of 16,785 jobs and an additional £1.48billion to the area’s economic output and help the delivery of our Strategic Economic Plan.
The Combined Authority has recently become a Group structure, taking on responsibility for Teesside International Airport and Teesworks – the UK’s largest Freeport – to cement our potential for global investment and regeneration.
As well as these assets, we boast experienced rail and engineering industries, a deep-sea port and advanced manufacturing heart. Tees Valley is also a dynamic business location for digital and creative technologies, and a leading destination for process industry and new, innovative energy companies.
Recent developments, such as securing Freeport status for sites in every borough, the news that a number of central Government departments will be relocating to our area including HM Treasury and recent investments in cutting-edge clean energy and offshore projects, shows just how we are punching above our weight right now.
If you want to play a vital part in delivering the change you want to see across the region, helping to improve our area for generations to come, we would like to hear from you.
