Peterlee is a new town in County Durham, in north east England, founded in 1948 on the site of a deserted medieval village called Yoden. The town is named after Peter Lee, a prominent local miner born one of eight in July 1864 at Duff Heap Row, Fivehouses in Trimdon Grange, in eastern Durham. He was an important miner's leader and became the chairman of England's first all Labour council at Durham in 1909. Peterlee was amongst the first generation of New Towns. It was constructed for a target population of 60,000, with the aim of supporting a greater number of community amenities. For a number of reasons, this vision did not materialise and Peterlee's existing population is only around a third of what was originally proposed. Peterlee town originally mostly housed coal miners. There has been some recent investment in the town centre, which has changed ownership in the last year and is currently undergoing modernisation and improvements to the main shopping street in a bid to attract more national retail multiples to the town. Significant new investment and physical redevelopment is still needed in order to ensure that it remains economically viable and support the community that it serves. Peterlee has strong economic and community ties with Sunderland and Hartlepool.
