A NEW £1m centre for digital businesses is being developed in the heart of Stockton town centre, creating 33 hi-tech jobs.

The centre will also see a previously empty 200-year-old Grade II listed building on Dovecot Street become part of the £20m regeneration of the town centre.

The former Quaker Friend’s Meeting House building will be transformed by a £500,000 grant from the European Regional Development Fund and £500,000 investment by its owners Stockton Council, to encourage digital and new media businesses to be based in the town.

Work will begin on the detached, two-storey building this summer with the six-month refurbishment completed and ready for its new occupants by Christmas.
