Church Street Public Realm Improvements

The council undertook a strategic program of public realm works within the area. Church Street is the focus of the Innovation & Skills Quarter, and undergoing a significant rejuvenation. The aim is to breathe new life into a historic area of Hartlepool.



  • Church Street is now complete.
  • Work began last year to create a more open, pedestrian-friendly street, with improvements including new block paved footpaths and roads.
  • The Church Street and Church Square improvements were funded by the Tees Valley Combined Authority, National Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Hartlepool Borough Council. The main contractor is the local firm Seymour Civil Engineering.
  • The new layout will make it easier for parts of the street to be closed to host future events.
  • Art has been placed in Church Street - including plaques in the paving.
  • “These much-needed improvements will enhance and celebrate this historic quarter of Hartlepool, creating an attractive and revitalised environment for people to enjoy and in which businesses can flourish.” 


Next Steps

  • Final snagging works are currently underway.
