Help shape future improvements to the Cornwall Street/Oxford Road area

Published Friday, 15th March 2019

Hartlepool Borough Council is inviting people to take part in a consultation event to help shape potential future improvements to the area between Cornwall Street and Oxford Road.

The Council has secured funding from Homes England through Thirteen Group to carry out a feasibility study of the area, which consists largely of terraced properties, and the public consultation is the first part of that.

The study – which will be carried out by independent consultants – will suggest various options for potential improvements which will help inform future decisions and bids for national regeneration funding should that become available.

The drop-in event is on Tuesday 19 March in the ORB Centre, 4 Caledonian Road, Hartlepool, from 3pm to 6.30pm.   

Councillor Kevin Cranney, Chair of the Council’s Regeneration Services Committee, said: “We’re extremely keen for people to tell us what they think are the issues facing the area and to talk to us about potential options for improvements in the short, medium and long term. Their views are crucial and will play a key role in how the project is taken forward.”

If people can’t attend the event but would like to find out more, they should contact the Council on 01429 523336 or email
