In Stockton-on-Tees, Our Markets Matter.
The Council has ambitious plans to reshape its six town centres across the Borough. The outdoor markets play an important role in Billingham, Stockton and Thornaby, making them fit for purpose for the communities they serve.
The Council continues to invest in its markets, staff and traders. We believe there must be a vision, a passion and a collective sense of unity between operator, traders and customers.
The Our Markets Matter strategy has been created to illustrate how the Council will operate going forward in order to achieve the goal of producing outstanding markets.
It also highlights some of the markets' great achievements, such as supporting traders to become award winning business owners, providing industry leading start-up packages and supporting local charities in order to give something back to the community.
