The new Communities Strategy is a vital part of the overall plan for the Borough as it sets out our vision and hopes for our communities and specifically that they will:

  • Be Cohesive, strong and welcoming
  • Join us in the task of tackling poverty across the Borough
  • Join us in the task of ensuring that people across the Borough are not lonely

Community Partnerships

The seven communities will be supported by seven Community Partnerships. The Community Partnerships will be made up of members of the community, Councillors, voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations, young people from the Borough-wide “Bright Minds Big Futures” initiative and faith group representatives. They will work to facilitate community involvement and to develop, drive and co-ordinate a community plan for their area.

The Borough of Stockton on Tees has seven communities:

  • Billingham Communities – Billingham Central, Billingham East, Billingham North, Billingham South, Billingham West
  • Ingleby Barwick Communities – Ingleby Barwick East, Ingleby Barwick West
