Blaydon Town Centre, Blaydon-on-Tyne

Blaydon Town Centre Regeneration has completely revitalised the dated 1970’s shopping precinct and associated town centre facilities, to become a new modern shopping environment, which has enhanced the shoppers’ experience.

The project consisted of a new Morrison’s Superstore and PFS, two large new retail units, the re-provision of the Youth Club, Health Centre, and Resource Centre in new individual buildings and refurbishment of the existing shopping centre.

Blaydon Regeneration has overcome many challenges, not least the major infrastructure services diversions, and the grouting of abandoned mine-workings, but also the replacement of several existing facilities to different locations, whilst working on a live and operational site, replacement of an existing petrol station and the fixed date for the opening of the Morrison’s store.
