The local area guide to living in Teeside

Teesside is a collection of urban settlements around Middlesbrough and the River Tees in north-east England. Other towns included in Teesside are Billingham, Redcar, Stockton-On-Tees, and Thornaby-on-Tees.

The area is a vital industrial centre for the north east still, despite declines in the levels of output in recent decades. Traditionally, chemical and steel industries were the biggest employers and they have begun to slowly give way to modern technological pursuits, including science development and some service roles. Chemical production is still a major influence, however with the Northeast of England Process Industry Cluster producing commodity chemicals, polymers, fertilisers and more and employing a large number of the local people.

Teesport is also a major influence on the local economy. It is the third biggest port in the UK and handles nearly 60 million tonnes of goods every year, of which a large proportion are related to the steel and chemical industries.

Middlesbrough, the town around which Teesside developed was, up until the early 19th century, a tiny hamlet of fewer than 30 people. The introduction of the railway and growth of local collieries and steel-making plants led to the town exploding into the industrial powerhouse it is today. Notably, the steel used in the Sydney Harbour Bridge was created in Middlesbrough.
