Hartlepool Regeneration Masterplan
 The Regeneration Masterplan is an depth
piece of work to look in detail at what can
be achieved on specific sites
 The work will also help us to understand
how we deliver development and
regeneration schemes on these sites
through conversations with the private
sector
 The Masterplan will also help us to
identify ways in which we can physically
link the sites and make movement
between them easier for pedestrians
