We’re committed to securing and supporting investment in Thornaby.
The Council has submitted a Town Investment Plan to bid for up to £25million of funding from the Government’s Towns Fund. This addresses a broad range of opportunities for redevelopment in Thornaby based on the public consultation and recognises the hard work of the Town Deal Board.
We are looking to a successful future to make Thornaby a thriving area that is anchored by a revitalised town centre, with the creation of additional activities there to create a community hub, while also safeguarding its existing facilities.
The Town Deal Board identified key priorities from this plan to:
- Tackle long term vacant properties in the town centre to enable new development and change of use.
- Support to enhance the delivery of skills training for Thornaby residents, liked to further education provision.
- New footpath and cycle infrastructure linking station, college, town centre and key residential and employment sites.
- Addressing poor quality housing in North Thornaby.
We’re also proposing a further £5million of additional funding investment for any future interventions in Thornaby.
