A number of Local Wildlife Sites have been identified in Hartlepool.  They are areas of high importance for their wildlife or geological interest on a local scale.

These sites are not legally protected, but the Council can seek to enter into voluntary management agreements with the owner so that they are managed sympathetically for conservation.

A map showing Hartlepool's Local Wildlife and Local Geological Sites and an accompanying description list is available to download.

Further general information about Local Wildlife Sites and Local Geological Sites is available from the GOV.UK website.
