Tees Valley: opportunity unlimited
on June 8, 2016, posted in North East categories
Lord Heseltine’s independent review of the Tees Valley was published this week, which reveals that the Government will be establishing a team of civil servants in Tees Valley to support devolution to the region and “test a new relationship with places that bring the best out of close contact with ministers”. The Government commissioned the review to examine how to attract investment to the region following the closure of the Redcar steel plant last year. The report recommends “transforming” education and skills provision and looking at extending the Transpennine electrification scheme to Teesside.
