PROJECT - Urban Regeneration

Hartlepool Heritage-led Regeneration

A once in a generation opportunity to transform Hartlepool and bring new investment to the area

A major heritage-focused regeneration project is happening in Hartlepool, led by our long-standing client, the National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN), in partnership with Hartlepool Borough Council.

Artelia is project and cost managing the £30m investment in Hartlepool Dockside which is home to HMS Trincomolee, one of only six surviving warships from the age of sail. The ambitious scheme will see the regeneration of the museum and the surrounding waterfront location. As part of the development programme, World War II rescue launch, RML 497, will also be restored and form the centrepiece of a new exhibition hall. You may remember Artelia previously managing her epic sea journey from Southampton to Hartlepool.

Other elements of the regeneration programme will include a STEM learning centre to provide learning and skills training opportunities for local people. The restoration of the Wingfield Castle paddle steamer – owned by Hartlepool Borough Council. Adjacent land owned by the Council will form an outdoor events space and new water sports centre and link to other adjacent regeneration schemes.
