Hartlepool Local Business Survey
We are encouraging businesses to help shape the future of our town by contributing ideas for regeneration and telling us what’s important to you and what could make Hartlepool a better place for your business.
Hartlepool is one of 100 towns across England invited by the Government to develop innovative regeneration plans to transform their economic growth prospects and secure up to £25m of funding through the Towns Fund. Each town is required to develop a Town Investment Plan, and as part of this process we are talking to people about the challenges and opportunities they see for Hartlepool.
The impacts of Covid-19 continue to be felt in our local economy and our communities and we recognise that it is a difficult time to be in business at the present time. The Town Deal will take on additional purpose as a key part of the efforts to recover and rebound from the Covid-19 crisis
We really need your views to help us shape ideas for the future of Hartlepool. This is about:
. Making an environment where businesses choose to locate, stay and grow
. Making the town a better place to live
. Creating a place that people want to visit, to spend time and money
· Improving skills and enabling higher value jobs
· Redefining and connecting Hartlepool’s town centre
· Defining and celebrating what makes Hartlepool special
· Recovering from the profound impacts of Covid-19
To make sure this funding meets local needs and has the biggest impact on improving our communities, we need to understand local issues and priorities from the perspective of local businesses, as well as ideas you may have.
It would be very helpful if you could spend a few moments completing this survey. Your input will inform the development of BIG IDEAS for Hartlepool.
The survey will be open until 31st August 2020.
