The Project aims to turn the derelict Chatterley Whitfield colliery site into a heritage country park. The work will include making the buildings and structures safe and refurbishing them over time to keep their unique heritage but creating commercial and non-commercial units for the future. We will transform the 50 hectare site to enhance the current landscape. New footpaths will be created to encourage recreational use of this green open space and the popular cycle route 55 will be kept and enhanced.
