About the Area
Tees Valley is where five distinct boroughs come together to make one exceptional destination in which to invest, live, work and visit.
From countryside to coast and village to town, variety and innovation continually drive us forward today.
We’re proud of our historical impact across the globe – from celebrated explorers and introducing the first passenger railway to providing the steel that built the modern world.
That legacy lives on today in the area’s rail and engineering industries, our deep-sea port and advanced manufacturing heart.
Tees Valley is also a dynamic business location for digital and creative technologies, and a leading destination for process industry and new energy companies.
This entrepreneurial environment inspires new ventures, raises the profile of businesses and creates job opportunities for our residents.
We have the right people with the right skills, ready to take up home-grown opportunities, work for big businesses that relocated here or on the many regeneration projects and developments being delivered across the boroughs.
Excellent road, rail, air and sea connections help make Tees Valley an attractive place for investors and our visitors.
Our guests enjoy many great things to do, places to stay, eat, drink and be inspired – from surfing and white-water rafting to walking and cycling in beautiful countryside, to top class theatre, art galleries and cultural events.
A blend of humour and can-do attitude makes our communities as unique as the landscape.
Quality of life is good because our people get more for their money, a superb variety of homes to suit all incomes, primary schools with top marks and apprenticeships and support schemes to offer excellent pathways to work for young people and graduates.
We love our diverse region, the five boroughs and their unique strengths that make Tees Valley greater than the sum of its parts, where the industrial skyline impressively frames rolling green landscapes and beautiful coastlines.
