Redcar and Cleveland

Delivering for Redcar and Cleveland

When I was fortunate to be elected as the first ever Mayor of the Tees Valley in May 2017, I pledged that I would serve every community that makes up the Tees Valley – including Redcar and Cleveland. This means that every one of the five council areas that make our area gets its fair share.

We’re investing your money - taxpayers’ money - so we can build that high growth, high wage, low welfare economy we desperately need. But this shouldn’t be some impossible dream. Just look at our record of delivery on investment in Redcar and Cleveland.
