The Tees Valley Combined Authority is responsible for overseeing around £½ billion in investment funds, with more to come through new devolution deals. In May 2017, the residents of the Tees Valley elected a Mayor for the Tees Valley, who Chairs the Combined Authority.
The Tees Valley covers five local authorities – Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar & Cleveland – with a combined population of 660,000 and borders County Durham and North Yorkshire.
