Register Office Coming Down as Regeneration Begins

By Published June 21, 2017

MIDDLESBROUGH’S former Register Office is being reduced to rubble as major multi-million pound regeneration works get underway.

The Elm Street venue, home of wedding and registration memories for people across Teesside, will be replaced by one of five new Grade A office blocks expected to bring 1,500 new jobs to Middlesbrough.

The scheme, by Ashall Projects, was granted planning permission last month and is a major part of Middlesbrough Council’s investment plans.

Over the next four years the Council is committed to an injection of £74 million into a series of developments as part of the town’s far-reaching Investment Prospectus.

The aim is that this confidence in Middlesbrough’s growing stature as the city heart of the Tees Valley will act as a catalyst for the creation of 5,000 new jobs in the town, in tandem with more than £600 million of inward investment from the private sector and other parts of the public sector.

Centre Square itself, already host to the internationally acclaimed mima, the Carnegie Central Library and the Gothic Town Hall, is seeing a number of improvements both in and around it.

Middlesbrough Town Hall is currently undergoing an £8m renovation project, Centre North East is being brought back into use with Turtle Bay restaurant, a sky bar, nightclub, micropub, boutique bowling alley and gym and Bistrot Pierre is set to open on Albert Road this summer.

The square itself is to be utilised even more and in the coming months will host the Orange Pip Market Summer Special, the annual Mela multi-cultural festival and Oktoberfest later in the year.

Middlesbrough’s Register Office is now located in the Town Hall following restoration works to create vibrant Victorian-style wedding venue.
