A new project has been launched to transform Middlesbrough into the “town centre of Teesside.”
The Investment Prospectus is a £74 million plan with the aim of improving the conditions of Middlesbrough town and regenerating the area as a whole.
With recent negative media coverage calling the town “the worst place to live in the UK”, the new plans for transformation could not come at a better time.
Dave Budd, Mayor of Middlesbrough, who is one of the leaders overseeing the project, said: “We are the on the verge of an important new era which will build Middlesbrough’s heritage and the town’s long-term future as the city at the heart of the Tees Valley.”
Plans are currently well underway for a snow centre at Middlehaven, expanded office space at Centre Square, a Media and Innovation Village, as well as a new student village for Teesside University.
TSide had the opportunity to interview the Mayor of Middlesbrough and asked him about the goals for the Investment Prospectus and what it will bring for Teesside University.
