Detail

This is Lord Heseltine’s independent review of the Tees Valley following a range of discussions with local private and pubic sector leaders and businesses to identify opportunities to unlock, promote and support economic growth.

Building on the momentum provided by the Tees Valley devolution deal and the new Combined Authority, the report makes recommendations to further develop the Tees Valley area with the emphasis on creating the conditions for a sustainable prosperous future.

Lord Heseltine worked closely with local leaders to bring forward the creation of the new South Tees Development Corporation, which will set the future vision for the SSI site and surrounding area. This will be the first Mayoral Development Corporation outside of London.
