Stockton-on-Tees is located at the heart of the Tees Valley in the North East of England. The area is within easy reach of city shopping and leisure facilities, the coast and rural North Yorkshire, as well as being home to industrial zones.

There is a unique social and economic mix, with areas of severe disadvantage alongside areas of affluence.

Stockton-on-Tees has a history of manufacturing industries. The petro-chemical industries have strong roots in the Borough. As the traditional industries have changed, the Council and its partners have invested in transforming the physical environment and promoting a more varied economy.

The Council’s ambition is to create a borough that is more confident, more vibrant and more successful than ever before – a place where people prosper and grow, where they feel happy, safe and healthy.
