The Borough of Stockton-on-Tees, commonly called Stockton Borough, is a local authority borough, a part of County Durham, North Yorkshire and Tees Valley, in Northern England. The main town is Stockton, which on the north bank of the River Tees. The town and borough have a population of 82,880 and 191,600, both shown in the 2011 census.[2]

The borough is governed by the unitary authority of Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council and the Mayor is Cllr Mohammed Javed.[1] The borough is in Teesside, with the conurbation‘s largest number of residents by borough, and is split between lieutenancy areas of County Durham (north) and North Yorkshire (south).

The core of the town was anciently in County Durham, but the borough spilled over the river into Yorkshire. The borough was formed on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972 from the Stockton part of Teesside County Borough (into which the previous Municipal Borough of Stockton-on-Tees had been incorporated in 1968), along with part of Stockton Rural District in County Durham and part of Stokesley Rural District from the North Riding of Yorkshire. At that time it was designated a non-metropolitan district of the county of Cleveland, which was established at the same time.

It became a unitary authority on 1 April 1996. For ceremonial purposes the borough is split between County Durham and North Yorkshire, along the line of the River Tees as shown in the map (left) with County Durham to the north and North Yorkshire to the south. It is the only council area in England or Wales to be split between two ceremonial counties.


The Borough has 26 wards with either one, two or three Councillors representing each. There are 56 Councillors in total in the Borough of Stockton, following the elections that took place in May 2015:

  • 32 Councillors are Labour
  • 13 Conservatives
  • 5 belong to IBIS (Ingleby Barwick Independent Society)
  • 3 Thornaby Independent Association
  • 2 West Words
  • 1 Liberal Democrat.[3]
