Public consultation on initial development projects
Hartlepool Borough Council has set out ambitious proposals for the regeneration of the Hartlepool Waterfront area – the five-acre site which includes the former Jacksons Landing and surrounding area.
Following consultation with key partners including Hartlepool Marina Ltd, the National Museum of the Royal Navy and other stakeholders within the area, the long-term plan is to develop the Waterfront as a landmark destination with a mix of civic, cultural, leisure and visitor attractions to complement the restaurants, cafes, bars and shops within the wider Hartlepool Marina area. This is key to unlocking the full potential of Hartlepool’s visitor economy.
A current view of the Hartlepool waterfront site
Because the site will be developed in phases over a period of time, it’s important to deliver a series of initial projects to begin to change the perception of the site and to attract interest and potential investment.
The Council has allocated £1.4m for these initial projects, which can be implemented on the site over the next 12-18 months.
These include a water activity centre, grassed areas, a sculpture trail, seating and new LED lighting and it is these proposals which the Council is asking for your views on in this public consultation.
