Description :
The A. examines the changing course and effects of direct intervention, by the central state, in local spatial change. The New Town started as a response to the local labour movement's demands for better living conditions and secure employment. Central government replaced local government and saw Peterlee as a way of ensuring the maintenance and reproduction of a labour force for mining coal. When coal mining collapsed, Peterlee became a spatial concentration of cheap peripheral labour to be used in low-paid and insecure assembly jobs.
