Hartlepool Economic Growth Strategy

Hartlepool’s refreshed Economic Growth & Regeneration Strategy 2019-2021 responds to recognised opportunities and challenges for Hartlepool.  Developed by key partners including the local business community we believe that it promotes a more dynamic, creative and distinctive approach to economic growth which captures the resilience and creativity of local businesses, supports more and better jobs for local people and maximises the potential of the Hartlepool’s portfolio of local economic assets.

The Strategy also positions Hartlepool as a major contributor to the productive growth ambitions of the Tees Valley and complements the Tees Valley Combined Authority wider investment and growth plans.

Split between three themes - creative, productive and connected, the strategy forms the three masts of Hartlepool’s economy which reflects the distinctive maritime associations from the past and for the future.

Hartlepool Borough Council is a key enabler of the local economy – but ultimately it is the activity and investment of businesses which will define the Borough’s progress over the next three years and beyond.
