With nearly half of the homes across the first two phases now built, the developer has already paid £558k, with the money to be spent towards schools, healthcare, roads, sports facilities and ecological measures.

Hayley Teasdale, Sales Manager at Bellway Durham, said: “Our contributions will make a significant and positive difference to Hartlepool.

“By making sure there is funding for school places, local NHS services, and road improvements, we are ensuring that Hartwell Park will thrive and that Hartlepool and its wider population will benefit too.

“Other contributions are going towards the replacement of Mill House Leisure Centre, improvements at Grayfields Recreation Ground, and tennis courts at Brierton. There will also be funding to mitigate the impact of recreation on the ecology of the coastline.”

Bellway’s investment will include more than £1 million towards education, £200,000 towards sports, £125,000 towards the NHS, £38,000 towards highways and £37,000 towards ecological measures, totalling nearly £1.5 million.

Bellway is selling properties in the first two phases of Hartwell Park and will release the final plots in phase one later this year.

There are also plans to open a ‘House to Home’ plot at the development at the end of April. This is a property that is set up to demonstrate to potential buyers the different stages of the building process from first fix to completion.
