The standard stratigraphical divisions of the Permian limestones of NE England are reviewed and re-interpreted as engineering types in a classification related to engineering geological requirements. Based on this classification a map of engineering geological zonation has been prepared at an original scale of 1:50 000. The general engineering geological characteristics of each zonal unit are described, in relation to engineering construction.
