Hartlepool Waterfront will be developed as a landmark destination with a mix of civic, cultural, leisure and visitor attraction uses to complement the restaurants, cafes, bars and shops around Hartlepool Marina.
Hartlepool is investing in its creative industries, providing a bright future for budding talent in this field.
The Innovation and Skills Quarter (ISQ) aims to revitalise Church Street and develop a thriving creative industries quarter based around Cleveland College of Art and Design’s new campus. The ISQ will strengthen links between the town centre and waterfront and provide modern business workspace in a supported incubation facility for creative industries businesses. Major improvements will be made to the environment in Church Street and Church Square and a new pedestrian crossing will be created at Stockton Street.
A new beachfront & promenade development has recently been completed with early evidence already showing an impact with an increase in visitors numbers and the growth of businesses in this historic seaside town.
