Council Plan 2024-2027

Our vision is for Middlesbrough to be a thriving, healthier, safer and more ambitious place where people want to live, work, invest and visit. We will support the people of Middlesbrough to live fulfilling lives to ensure that our communities thrive.

This vision for the town is set out in our Council Plan for 2024-27. The plan was developed by Mayor Chris Cooke, his Executive team and senior staff. It was approved by Full Council in February 2024.

Like many areas, Middlesbrough faces lots of challenges. We're determined to work with local people, our partners and businesses to overcome them. We're also working with government and other bodies to make changes to how we do things. We are addressing problems from the past so we can look to the future with confidence.

Middlesbrough is a brilliant town and while we work on addressing our challenges, we will also promote the brilliant things that happen here. It's important that we use the talent, pride and positivity of our people to make the most of the opportunities that come our way.

We believe this Council Plan can help create a fair, welcoming and thriving place.
