Local businesses are welcomed to shape Hartlepool’s new Economic Growth Strategy.

Hartlepool Borough Council is seeking the views of Hartlepool businesses in the development of the Town’s Economic Growth Strategy. The current strategy was developed in 2018 and is due for an update this year especially after a long period of difficult economic trading conditions due to Covid-19. The strategy will set the town’s economic priorities for recovery and growth for the coming years.

Economic Regeneration & Tourism Forum

The Economic Regeneration and Tourism Forum, held on Thursday 17th February 2022, provided Hartlepool businesses the chance to contribute the discussions on the development of the Hartlepool Economic Growth Strategy.

The forum was led by ERS Research and Consultancy, who are helping Hartlepool Borough Council with the development of the new Economic Growth Strategy. To open the meeting, Consultant, Keith Burge, presented to the attendees, before giving them the opportunity to discuss ideas as groups, which were then shared with the whole room. The ideas from each group were recorded by our team of facilitators, and will be used to help shape the new strategy.
