Yarm High Street


Yarm High Street, Stockton-on-Tees

Plans to reinvigorate this Georgian High Street are well underway. The community has pulled together to organise events to improve the town, for example high street shops taking part in a Summer Fashion Launch Day and a high street Easter competition with over £500 worth of gifts donated by businesses. On the horizon, there are plans for new heritage signs, a ‘Use My Loo’ campaign (to encourage businesses to provide access to facilities) and free dementia training for high street staff. Environmentally, a local residents group has produced and sold ‘Knitted Bags for Life,’ local litter picks and weed pulls have been organised, and the council has invested over £500,000 for high street infrastructure improvements.Digital coaching for businesses is on offer, and more innovative visions for the future include a floating cycle route, illuminated river walks and charging points for electric cars.
