£300m Stockton scheme gets underway
Work has started on a £300m regeneration scheme at Northshore on the banks of the River Tees in Stockton in a bid to transform business in the area.
Construction at the 23-hectare riverside site next to Stockton’s Infinity Bridge has begun with a first phase residential development.
The former heavy industrial and shipbuilding site close to Stockton town centre has been the subject of a major remediation programme funded by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
Leader of Stockton Council, Councillor Ken Lupton, said: “The council is strongly committed to the regeneration of Stockton Borough.
“Last week we announced the launch of our town centre development prospectus setting out a five year, £20m investment programme to transform the High Street and make it more attractive for retailers, businesses, shoppers and visitors.”
