What is our vibrant smart city?

Through substantial regeneration projects, agile collaborations and continued investment in the city, we are already creating a more vibrant economy.

Improving experiences for residents and visitors – in creating a vibrant smart city centre aligned to our City Plan, we create a visitor destination which presents Sunderland as a competitive, attractive and successful place to live, work, learn and invest.

From award-winning theatres, museums, galleries and music venues, to substantial inward investment, world-class education and leading research facilities; we are well on the way to shaping a unique, desirable urban setting.

By 2030 we will have:

  • more resilient people
  • more people feeling safe in their homes and neighbourhoods
  • more residents participating in their communities
  • more people visiting Sunderland and more residents informing and participating in cultural events, programmes and activities

Our connected smart city is alive with opportunity and represents an attractive proposition for businesses looking to invest as well as individuals searching for succeed. Explore our dynamic smart city here.
