Hunters are proud Stockton has been voted as the 6th best place to live according to the Telegraph, click here for more information. 

These improvements will see the street transformed with open spaces, new car parks and a growing number and variety of shops.

The first phase started at the South End of the High Street (opposite the Castlegate Shopping Centre) on Monday 24th September 2012 and was completed early summer 2013. There are now five further phases with the whole project expected to be complete in early 2015.

The council comments:

"We'll make sure access to shops is maintained at all times with at least a three metre walkway available, with noise, dust and distribution kept to a minimum. the businesses still need you to come and shop in the High Street so why not combine your journey and take a peek through out open fencing to see what we're up to?"

Three further phases will follow providing a focal point in the central area incorporating seating, grass and a stylish water feature as well as a dedicated space for the regular market, an automation, and a flexible space for events and specialist markets.

Also being created is a dedicated walkway to connect the riverside and the end of the High Street, along with new spaces to sit, relax and play.
