The Tees Valley Combined Authority was created in April 2016. Our purpose is to drive economic growth and job creation in the area. Under the devolution deal with Government, we have taken on responsibilities previously held in London; for transport, infrastructure, skills, business investment and culture and tourism. On 6 May 2021, the people of the Tees Valley re-elected the Tees Valley Mayor, Ben Houchen, who chairs the Combined Authority.
