Stockton Town Centre

The vision for the award winning Stockton Town Centre is for a thriving market town with high quality public spaces, stylish water feature and a growing retail offer that serves the needs of residents, businesses and visitors.

Our aim is for Stockton Town Centre to be a focal point for cultural activity with year round festivals, varied shopping experience including our historic and specialist markets and top class leisure facilities.

We will continue to conserve and enhance our historic buildings and build upon the asset of the River Tees to provide a high quality setting for new businesses.

Key projects will transform the image of the area, support the growth and development of the leisure economy and put the building blocks in place for an expanding retail and business sector.

For further information on what we are doing now and how much more we have planned see our Stockton Town Centre Prospectus and Stockton Town Centre Urban Design Guide or visit the Rediscover Stockton website

Hampton by Hilton Hotel

As part of the Northshore scheme, the Council is developing a new hotel on the Northshore Gateway site. The £17 million investment is a new venture for the Council and is expected to open in autumn 2018. As the first commercial venture of this scale for the Council we thought it would be helpful to explain some more about the development.
