About Redcar & Cleveland
Our borough is one of Britain’s hidden gems – it boasts a stunning coastline and the gateway to the natural beauty of North York Moors National Park. Unsurprisingly, the opportunity for outdoor activities is wide ranging and plentiful.
The standard of living is high, but the cost of living is not. House prices are very affordable and your money will go much further than in many other parts of the country; a large family home here comes at the same price as a small flat in the South East.
If you have a family – or are considering starting one – Redcar and Cleveland has the best performing primary schools outside London at Key Stage 2.
We have national treasures in the Grade I listed Kirkleatham Estate and the National Trust-run Ormesby Hall, and our offering as a tourist and cultural destination is developing at a pace.
The cultural, sporting and retail attractions of the Tees Valley are on the doorstep and York, Newcastle and Durham are all within an hour’s drive of our borough, providing a huge range of additional leisure, cultural and entertainment options.
Redcar & Cleveland is already a fantastic place in which to live, study and do business – we are looking for someone with the ambition to make it even better in the future.
