One Public Estate: Seaton Lane, Hartlepool

Hartlepool is a coastal town of about 93,000 people, situated in the North East of England. It was founded on ship building and steel making and has areas of high deprivation as well as more prosperous parts. It retains its industrial sector but is also expanding in the arts and creative sectors and is home to Britain’s oldest floating warship, HMS Trincomalee. Hartlepool Council successfully secured LRF funding to remove development constraints on Council owned land in a disadvantaged area of the town. This funding allowed the council to secure a local developer to deliver private for sale housing, to help diversify the housing mix and support the regeneration of the area.
