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.

Read the full summary of consultation responses.

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:

  1. Tackle long term vacant properties in the town centre to enable new development and change of use.
  2. Support to enhance the delivery of skills training for Thornaby residents, liked to further education provision.
  3. New footpath and cycle infrastructure linking station, college, town centre and key residential and employment sites.
  4. Addressing poor quality housing in North Thornaby.

We’re also proposing a further £5million of additional funding investment for any future interventions in Thornaby.
