Cabinet Decision: 14th July 2016
Title of Item/Report
River Tees Leisure Access & Development
Record of the Decision
Cabinet considered a report that provided information on River Tees Leisure Access and Development.

The River Tees was an important strategic asset providing recreational and leisure opportunities and adding character and value to development sites, in addition to its general contribution to the image and identity of the Borough and the wider conurbation. There were a number of sites adjacent to the Tees within Stockton Borough which had the potential for further development to increase access to and use of the River. This report outlined a planned review of key sites being undertaken by SBC in conjunction with its key partners. It also updated on the arrangements to support access and enjoyment of the river corridor, including the River Users Group and the River Tees Rediscovered project.

The planned review of sites and opportunities was a focused and pragmatic piece of work to update existing plans, rather than a more comprehensive and definitive study. Subject to the effective input of partner agencies a further report would be presented to Cabinet later this calendar year.

RESOLVED that the report be noted and the scope of the proposed limited review of key sites and access opportunities along the Tees corridor within the Borough be endorsed
Reasons for the Decision
Cabinet was asked to consider the scope and purpose of this planned limited review of the Tees corridor opportunities to provide guidance to officers on relevant matters and priorities and to empower officers to explore development opportunities with partner agencies.
