300 construction jobs to be created with North East councils’ £2.1bn energy recovery facility

Councils across the North East have announced that they are joining forces for a £2.1bn project that could create 300 construction jobs.

Five Tees Valley borough authorities – Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton – Durham County Council and Newcastle City Council want to build a new “Energy Recovery Facility” in the region.

The project could see 450,000 tonnes of waste a year being used to generate electricity, and potentially heating nearby homes and businesses.
