Highthorn Surface Mine would create 50 new jobs and could maintain the jobs of over 50 people who currently work at our surface mines at Shotton and Brenkley Lane near Cramlington.

The proposals would deliver substantial investment into local businesses, the supply chain and the tourism economy. We have been working with different local organisation to look at ways of strengthening the tourism offer in the area and this has resulted in the Discover Druridge initiative.

If you run a business in the local area and would like to work with us to strengthen the local economy then we’d love to hear from you. Please email highthorn@banksgroup.co.uk to register your interest in working with us.
