FIFTEEN thousand jobs could be heading for the Hartlepool area in the single biggest employment boost ever planned.

The town’s massive role within the proposed Teesside-wide Enterprise Zone can today be revealed in full for the first time.

Regeneration chiefs at Tees Valley Unlimited have drawn up an ambitious package, creating 43,000 jobs for the Tees Valley with 15,000 for Hartlepool and its surroundings, and 7,800 for the Billingham area.

It would generate more than £4billion of capital investment over the next 25 years.
