Chatterley Whitfield Colliery, Biddulph Road, Stoke-on-Trent - Stoke-on-Trent, City of (UA)

Large redundant C19-C20 colliery in need of major repair and regeneration. The site includes 15 scheduled structures and 5 listed buildings. A heritage based regeneration programme has been started based on a masterplan but a long term solution still needs to be agreed. Progress with the re-use of buildings and reclamation works has been slow however, discussions on private sector engagement and longer term proposals are ongoing.
