Residents are being asked for their views on plans for a multi-million pound regeneration of Hartlepool.

Hartlepool Borough Council has unveiled a plan which it says aims to help revitalise the town centre.

Part of Hartlepool Vision, the plans outline how the marina, waterfront and the wider town centre could be developed over the next few years.

Councillor Robbie Payne said the authority had a "clear vision" about what it wanted to achieve for the town.

The plans include developing areas including the Headland, Church Street and Seaton Carew.

In 2013, the council purchased Jacksons Landing - a former shopping outlet at the marina in the hope of using the site to build flats.

Mr Payne, said: "I think the proposals set out in the regeneration masterplan are well thought out, realistic and have the potential to significantly improve our town.

"However, what is more important is what local people think and we now want to hear from residents and the business community to let us know whether they think we have got this right."

The public consultation ends 12 February.
