Stockton Council Boosts the Building Construction Sector
Stockton Council is planning to build a new state-of-the-art library and customer service centre to match similar complexes in surrounding areas of Stockton and Thornaby.
The project is one of the largest improvement schemes among other construction projects in town. It brings the council’s investment in the area to more than £23 million in recent years with significant numbers of redevelopment projects and affordable housing schemes.
Stockton Council’s cabinet member for regeneration and transport, Councillor Mike Smith, welcomed the decision of the council to build new facilities in town which will boost the local economy and create new jobs whilst offering a good service.
Mr Smith said: “This is tremendous news for Billingham and honours the council’s commitment to create such a facility in the town.
“The service centres have been hugely successful and popular elsewhere in the borough and also help attract many people to go into the town centres.” added Councillor Smith.
Recent investments in building and construction projects have been crucial measures for the government to secure economic growth and create new jobs.
