Talking about regeneration…
With a strong industrial heritage to build on, Tees Valley has adapted to become a UK-leading base for digital and creative businesses, new age process industries and advanced manufacturing.
The area is a digital powerhouse with one of the fastest growing digital clusters in the country supporting 7,000 jobs and making a contribution of £211 million to the local economy.
Middlesbrough, at the heart of Tees Valley, already has an extensive regeneration programme that will see more than £100 million invested in the next five years, on top of investment of £464 million into regional infrastructure, jobs and education over the next three years.
The town centre is currently undergoing a significant renaissance, from the £30million Snow Dome due to open in 2019, which will attract visitors from all over the UK, to the redevelopment of Centre Square to provide Grade A offices, and a student village for the many young people who come to the town to attend Teesside University.
Ongoing investment will see 98% of the area serviced by superfast broadband by the end of 2018.
