Tees Valley

Tees Valley

The Tees Valley is an area in the North East of England. It can be described as "greater Teesside" and consists of the four unitary authorities created by the breakup of the County of Cleveland in 1996: Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar & Cleveland, and Stockton-On-Tees along with the borough of Darlington which became a unitary authority in 1997.

For ceremonial purposes the areas north and south of the River Tees belong to the counties of County Durham and North Yorkshire respectively (those areas which form part of North Yorkshire, lie within the historic county boundaries of the North Riding of Yorkshire). This arrangement is affirmed by the presence of an appropriate office of the Lord Lieutenancy, representing HM The Queen in these established geographical areas.

With typical political confusion associated with the Teesside region the Tees Valley boroughs, including those designated as part of the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire exist alongside the other three formal sub-regions of the North East, County Durham, Northumberland and Tyne and Wear.

What confuses the issue further is the the Tees Valley is not acutally part of a Valley at all. Many member of the local population refuse to use the term 'Tees Valley' so much so that the local airport is still widely known as 'Teesside Airport' rather than its official name Durham Tees Valley Airport.
