News / £1m improvement scheme for Blackpool

A £1m scheme to improve the appearance of town centre properties in Blackpool has launched as part of a wider initiative designed to revitalise the area.

It is hoped the project, which is funded by Blackpool Council and the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership (LEP), will make the town centre more attractive to shoppers, residents and investors.

Grants are available for up to 95 per cent of the total cost of the works.

Councillor Gillian Campbell, deputy leader of Blackpool Council, said: “This scheme is part of a wider regeneration project which aims to encourage the economic revitalisation of Blackpool town centre through a programme of highways, public realm and building improvement works.”
