Rubbish

Creating an insensitive for landlords in the ts1 area to paint houses. Once to step you step off Linthorpe road on to crescent road it’s like going from what the town wishes it looked like into a slum. Trash everywhere, broken windows burnt out houses, and generally a deprived and unsafe area. This is where […]

Street cleaners

Street cleaners. Every day I open my door to find general bits of trash all over the pavement. Seems that people don’t understand bins and subsequently just chuck their rubbish where ever.

Helping small businesses

We have a bit of funding in the area but limited means for companies to access it. The funding either requires a decent size investment from the company which they cant afford and then the funding covers material things rather than cash flow. We need to make money more accessible for small businesses to help […]

Infrastructure

The high speed train and train station to actually go ahead to connect us to London. Or at the very least the metro continued from Sunderland to Middlesbrough.

Events to support smaller local business

The local ‘orange’ pip market has already proven to be a hugely successful event supporting the local businesses and bring much needed footfall to the town centre. I propose that other events such as the previously hugely well liked Middlesbrough Music live and its open ‘Mike’ free music festival atmosphere would also bring similar benefits. […]

Events to stimulate the local economy

Provide support and planning for good quality events in the local area similar to Middlesbrough Music Live, Radio 1 big weekend, Christmas Market and Orange Pip Markets. These events attract people into the town centres to spend money in local businesses. Many people travel quite a lot for shopping, entertainment and days out with the […]

Less evening food joints

Improve the town centre, make it more accessible for the old and disabled. Try to remove street begging. Stop large groups of people congregating intimidating others. Stop having shuttered evening hot food places being closed during the day making the town an eyesore. Help local businesses set up in the area instead of high tax […]

Higher quality housing

In order to attract employable workers we must drain the town centre of undesirables, which Middlesbrough has an abundance of. Offer higher quality housing and working areas. Make the town centre a place where people WANT to be.

Tourism

What are the first things people see when arriving at Middlesbrough Bus & Train Station? What is Middlesbrough famous for? The Transporter bridge. How many people have been to Middlesbrough but never visited our landmark because they don’t know where it is or how long it will take to get there? Promote the area. There […]

Create more facilities for youths in order to properly resource our underfunded children’s service

Tory cuts have seen many resource and facility close leaving barely nothing for the children and teenagers of our town. As a person who works for this local authority, I have seen first hand the devestating effect the lack of services and centres has on the life of a child or teenager. Workers have to […]

Energy-efficient

I would like to suggest investment in the university for research into renewable energy. That being said also to build a wind farm owned by the government allowing a growth in employment in the green energy market benifitting both the the packets of the local population and the government also this would be great for […]

Community centres

This place needs more community centres for young people. They are often hanging around the streets and around shops, this is intimidating and it also enables crime as they have nothing to focus their attention on other than mischief. There were youth clubs in community centres when I was younger and I loved them! They […]

Help the homeless

Bring back Breaking Boundaries and do something to help the homeless once and for all, please. There is a big homeless problem in Middlesbrough, I’ve seen them on the streets at night trying to get themselves warm, huddled up in sleeping bags, I’ve fed them, please let’s have some help for them, the homeless are […]

Linthorpe road

Linthorpe road is like another continent now, it’s embarrassing the amount of take aways and multiculti shops. Yes we should have variety but there doesn’t need to be so many selling the same items. Begging is rife here too, with some people choosing to sit beside the cash machines and asking you for money whilst […]

Homelessness

Something really needs to happen to the sheer amount of people in Teesside who are homeless right now. There is no help or support for them anymore and I’m sick of my local Mayor taking the ‘out of sight out of mind’ approach. People are freezing to death on the streets of Middlesbrough. Maybe not […]

Improving music tuition in schools

It has been proven that children learning music helps in all other education, it helps with concentration skills and is good for pit mental health. As an adult playing music the results of under spending in instrumental lessons can be seen, children that are lucky enough to have parents who can fund lessons are taking […]

Finding to be spent ensuring the homeless get support to eat and somewhere to sleep safe at night and services to support them back into work; developing their skills and empowering them to make lifestyle changes!

Money for skills

The area should become a UK centre of excellence for biomanufacturing. There are key organisation here (CPI, Fujifilmdiosynth, National horizons) who between them can create a Centre of Excellence in Viral Vextor production. This would help with rapid responses to e.g. CoronaVirus.

Town centre

As shopping moves online we see everywhere empty shops. We have an existing initiation here called empty shop where Arteta use empty premises to exhibit work. I feel as high street shopping falls from favour that we in Middlesbrough should lead the way by regenerating the centre, not by showing in more pound shops but […]

Community development

The railway

The trains around Middlesbrough and the north east are incredibly unreliable, making travelling to and from work a nightmare for lots of people. Middlesbrough train station needs upgrading, it is very outdated and its age is starting to show. Mould, cracks etc, and cold waiting rooms are the main issues at the station, but also […]

Sad town centre

The town centre is dwindling away and what was once a thriving a bustling centre is disappearing. We need to invest and find alternative uses for the buildings and shopping centres that are just full of empty units.

Family fun

We don’t have much to do in Middlesbrough apart from pubs and cinema. We would like to have a family fun/leisure centre to gather and enjoy as a community. It could be anything from an indoor ice skating rink or a little water park.

Green up the town

I would like to see more green space and cycling areas in the town centre. Currently all the plans are for new office space, the people and health is being forgotten. Current plans are taking away from the little green space already there and this needs to change. Outdoor space with plants, trees and grass […]

Reputation/Civic Pride

Encourage civic pride; from lessons in primary and secondary schools about the history of our town, it’s journey and it’s future to more visible positive messages. Challenge any down talking of the area – the Council, police, fire brigades and health organisations as well as the football club, university and other private organisations to together […]

Re-open Nature’s World

Reopen natures world again, extend to Garden Center and tidy up the whole section. Add a small Store /cafe etc, widen the road and fill potholes/resurface road. Add stops so you can get a bus to Redcar from Acklam (Ladgate lane near Bluebell end)

Snow centre

Spend some funding bringing the corrupt council to justice over the loss of tax payer money funding the snow centre scheme that was never going to happen. Investigate the sale of vakuable council assets to the mayors associates for mere pennies, the arts centre, acklam hall etc.

Street cleaning/maintenance

The streets are filthy with litter and it is clear that not enough is being done to tackle this issue. Perhaps more public bins and more enforcement for litterers. Better trash collections and recycling facilities throughout the city especially at the University Accomodation.

Industry and creativity

I believe as a 19 year old student that we should be investing money in the most important aspects of our community Middlesbrough used to be known to the vikings as Ironopolis, this was because of our plentiful resource of iron, I believe we owe it to our rich history to return Middlesbrough back to […]

Pride March

We’d like a Pride March to be held within the city, the closest one available is in Newcastle (Northern Pride), which can be a bit far for local residents. Having a pride march within Middlesbrough will promote tourism, improve the LGBTQ+ relationship with the city and hopefully sponsor a better public opinion.

More places for youths.

Teenagers need somewhere to go. The youth clubs were closed down and this has led to bored teens roaming the streets, forming gangs, and quite a few of them are causing trouble, from generally intimidating people to assaulting them and robbing local shops. Teenagers need somewhere to go after school and on a weekend to […]

Children’s Basic Needs

More money invested in ensuring that children from lower income households have access to 3 meals a day, as many children come to school hungry and aren’t fed properly in the evening. If basic human needs aren’t met, then effective learning can’t occur, which then also affects behaviour. With a world so focussed on testing, […]

Obesity reduction

I would like to see focused sessions to help reduce obesity, work within schools and also a GP referral service for adults for obesity swimming classes ie private sessions in a closed pool – it reduces pressure on the individuals joints and encourages exercise within a group of individuals in the same scenario. This is […]

Shops and streets

The town centre needs urgent revitalisation – beggers and take aways need to be brought under control, street furniture and cleanliness needs addressing. The village needs regeneration. It should reflect the once gentrified nature of linthorpe and be a haven of shops and community facilities. Pavements, roads and street furniture needs updating urgently. Encourage independent […]

More architectural/art buildings, update parks, town centre houses updates and student activities

I think the improvements centrally of the university have been a real help to the aesthetic of the town, I’d love to see more but not just for the university. I’d love to see the houses in the town centre upgraded or even demolished to build more especially around the mosques. We need more buildings […]

A19 TEES TUNNEL

another way to cross the river TEES to improve flow in and out of Middlesbrough. At the moment congestion is awful on the way in and out and the flyover isn’t really safe as too many lanes merge together. Build a TEES tunnel for the A19 so that people can get in and out

Internship Fund

A pot of money to support local students as they take up low paid and unpaid placements that are related to their course. A lot of opportunities, especially in creative fields, are based in cities where Living costs are higher. This means these experiential opportunities are more likely to be taken up by wealthier students […]

Help Young People Develop Interests

For a long time, even when I was young, many kids had no interests in anything other than hanging around with their mates on the streets. Leave them on their own or at home, they were bored stiff. They end up being uninterested in anything other than instant gratification and anti social behaviour, even as […]

Important improvements

Recycling facilities for every property which is properly segregated and picked up. An actual recycling centre or have the one in Sainsbury’s be emptied more frequently. Improve the aesthetic side of Middlesbrough town centre and add an entertainment factor. More people will want to visit or live here if the place is nicer.

Small Business Investment

Our great nation has been sculpted by SME’s and further investment into our local economy. This would not only help our area financially, but would raise great spirit for Middlesbrough; especially, since the downfall of our Steel industry.

The official parmo walking tour.

What better way to celebrate Teesside’s only true significant contribution to culture and society?? I am of course talking about the parmo. Let me set the scene. Flattened chicken breast, breadcrumbed, fried, bechemel sauce, cheese of questionable origin, oven baked, garlic sauce. You can’t say no to that. The official parmo walking tour will be […]

Revitalise The Police Force

Town Centre

I would like to see Middlesbrough town centre become a place that looks and feels like a place that is smart, pleasant and safe.

Fix Potholes

The roads around middlesbrough are overrun with very deep potholes and the sound of your car going over them is absolutely awful. It’s not fair that people work hard to purchase and maintain a vehicle and are prematurely having to get work done to it because of potholes in the road.
