This website provides information on proposals by Hellens Group for the redevelopment of the former Houghton Colliery site.


Hellens have revised their current planning application to include new Tesco and Home Bargains stores.

The proposals would regenerate this key site on the edge of Houghton le Spring Town Centre, significantly improve the range of retail and leisure provision available to local residents, and generate new job opportunities.


We are keen to hear your views on the revised proposals. Please complete a questionnaire and provide any comments you may have.
