This question was answered on 9th March 2021

The Government remains committed to levelling up opportunity across the UK, including in the Tees Valley.

At the Budget I confirmed a series of measures to level up Tees Valley’s economy:

  • New investment in offshore wind ports infrastructure;
  • the Teesside Freeport, which I visited with the Prime Minster on Thursday;
  • and the new Treasury economic campus in Darlington.

The Tees Valley will also benefit from two new Towns Fund Deals, in Middlesbrough and Thornaby.
