Work has started today on a major new commercial development in Hartlepool.
The work at Queens Meadow Business Park years has come about thanks to an investment of £3m by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA).
The HCA has appointed Meldrum Construction to build over 2,000m2 of light industrial units at Queens Meadow Business Park, to the south of the town centre.
Queens Meadow is one of eight key sites identified in the Hartlepool Vision – a radical new blueprint to revitalise the town and lay the foundations for its future prosperity.
The HCA development will provide new industrial space which will be available on flexible leasing terms. The Business Park is in an Enterprise Zone, so the tenants could get business rate relief if they are moving into or expanding in the area.
Matt Cooper is our apprentice Engineer working at The Queens Meadow Industrial Estate, see his interview with HCA below.
