Plans to regenerate parts of Hartlepool could lead to the creation of up to 2,000 jobs, the council has said.

It has invited private companies to develop areas including the Headland, Church Street and Seaton Carew.

A year ago the council purchased Jacksons Landing - a former shopping outlet at the marina - and it is hoped flats could be built on the site.

The council said the proposals sent a message to potential investors that the town was "open for business".

Councillor Christopher Akers-Belcher, the leader of Hartlepool Borough Council, said: "Our aim is to create major new retail and leisure facilities, increase the town's profile as a visitor destination and produce much-needed job opportunities for the town.

"The Hartlepool Vision will also pave the way for the creation of a detailed masterplan which will explore in depth the full potential of the areas and propose realistic solutions for what can be achieved."
