Welcome to the Peterlee Town Council website

Greetings from the heart of East Durham! At Peterlee Town Council, we take pride in serving the vibrant community of Peterlee, a town designed for living, rich in green spaces, and steeped in history. Our team, comprising 22 dedicated elected Councillors and over 50 passionate staff members, is committed to fostering community well-being, enhancing our beautiful landscapes, and ensuring the efficient governance of our town.

Peterlee, named in honour of Peter Lee, the miners’ leader and social visionary, is more than just a place on the map—it's a testament to progressive community planning and a homage to our proud mining heritage. From the Pavilion to our lush parks and recreation areas, Peterlee is a blend of art, history, and natural beauty.
