Drawn up back in 2019, the Tees Valley ten-year investment plan was set to drive Teeside, Hartlepool and Darlington forward following a devolution deal with central government. Nearly three-years on, the Tees Valley Region looks towards a prosperous and thriving future, with major schemes and projects set to further drive development and investment throughout the region.

In addition to the wide array of major infrastructure, retail, commercial and residential projects planned or underway, the combined authority is also leading the charge towards net zero, with the region set to become home to the UK’s largest Energy Recovery Facility valued at approximately £2.1bn and will also feature the nation’s first hydrogen transport trials. The region’s recent freeport status has also laid the groundwork for further investment and growth.

This event will bring together public and private sector stakeholders behind the schemes and developments to share insight into their work and engage in a thought leadership discussion on the future of development across the Tees Valley region.

Speakers for this event include:

They are also currently working on housing schemes in Redcar and Middlesbrough.
  • Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council – Stockton will see a wave of regeneration and development over the coming decade.  The council are taking an innovative approach to solving the current high street crisis, having recently purchased the vast Castlegate shopping centre in order to demolish the building and replace it with a £21m waterfront development, three times the size of Trafalgar Square.
