Improving roads, improving lives
We are always looking at ways to improve the Borough and its economy. In partnership with the Tees Valley Combined Authority, the four other Tees Valley councils and Highways England, we have set out proposals for better transport connections across the whole area.
These proposals include a new Tees Crossing, taking some pressure off the A19 Tees Viaduct, and enhanced east-west connectivity with improvements to the A66 between the A1(M) and Teesport, which includes the possibility of a new Darlington Bypass.
You can find out more about these plans at an event at the Dolphin Centre on Thursday 13 July from 1-6pm.
There’s no need to book, just pop along when you can and find out about the exciting plans for our borough. By Planning Policy Team at 6 Jul 2017

The Local Plan website is changing as we move on to the next stages of preparing the plan.
All of the content is still available as before, but now we have designated pages for our forthcoming Themes and Masterplans. These will be the basis of our discussions with you in the near future and you might want to save or bookmark the pages you are most interested in.
You will also be able to clearly see when consultations are running, under the Consultations option, and we will be posting relevant planning documents in the Document Library for easy access.
