New reports suggest that renovation of older buildings ought to be considered instead of pulling down structures, for reasons including the climate impact.
But we want to know which of these Hartlepool buildings you would still like to see in the town if we could turn back the clock.
Would it be the Seaton baths, Jackson’s Landing, Tunstall Court or the old bus station? All these are included in our demolition round-up.
