Thornaby District Centre, Stockton-On-Tees

Project Overview

Thornfield Properties formally revealed its plans for a £20M regeneration of Thornaby town centre in April 2004, with MAZE as planning adviser. The scheme will provide 12,000sqm of retail floorspace in 30 new retail units and a foodstore for Lidl.

Working in partnership with Stockton on Tees Borough Council, the Thornaby Regeneration Partnership and the local community, Thornfield’s scheme will position Thornaby as a key retail, leisure and commercial destination for the region.

MAZE successfully guided the necessary planning applications for redevelopment of the center and an adjacent site through the planning process during 2004. Demolition commenced in 2007 and MAZE continues to provide support the development team as the scheme is implemented.
