Hebburn Central

Hebburn regeneration

The Council has a clear vision for Hebburn which includes quality new homes and shopping facilities set within a vibrant Town Centre. At the heart of the regeneration plans is the delivery of a new world-class building offering a range of facilities and services for residents to enjoy.

Transforming Hebburn Town Centre is a priority for the Council and as such has invested £13million in the development of Hebburn Central, a new hub which will act as a catalyst and anchor to secure private sector interest and funding.
