The plan is focused on accelerating Hartlepool by maximising the potential of its maritime past, manufacturing present and creative future

The Hartlepool Development Corporation Board has unanimously agreed the masterplan to supercharge regeneration in the town at its second meeting. 

It sets out the strategy to drive investment and support its transformation by stimulating private sector investment and growth, creating partnerships to unlock opportunities and promote the area to would-be investors.

This includes attracting 2,000 new, good-quality jobs; building up to 1,300 new homes; restoring, reinvigorating and reshaping a sustainable and vibrant town centre; and to renew the waterfront to create a thriving maritime economy around its historic Marina.
