The Council continues to invest to make South Tyneside a great place to live, invest and bring up families.
There is a huge programme of investment underway across South Tyneside, including new and improved housing, modernised community and leisure facilities, economic growth projects, roads and footpaths investment, and so much more.
Where does the money come from?
Our investment programme is financed by a mixture of external funding, government grants, revenue budgets, borrowing and capital receipts from the sales of our assets.
The Council has a structured and co-ordinated approach to the pursuit of external funding to make sure it is in line with objectives, it has sustainable match funding and avoids duplication.
The target level of borrowing is affordable and consistent with our budget forecasts and capital receipts are generated through the disposal of council land and buildings that are surplus to council needs.
South Shields 365
The Council and its partners have completed phase one and phase two of South Shields 365, a £100 million redevelopment of South Shields town centre, with the sustainable economic vision to breathe new life into the community.
The Council has a clear vision for Hebburn which includes quality new homes and shopping facilities set within a vibrant Town Centre, including the delivery of a new world-class building offering a range of facilities and services for residents to enjoy.
Plans for a vibrant riverside development in South Shields have taken a major step forward. The plan will transform disused docks and surrounding brownfield land into a bustling living, working and entertainment quarter.
