Working towards a better Blackpool
Our ambition is to create a more attractive place to live, with a thriving economy, leading to more jobs for local people. Blackpool is one of 101 UK towns that is on track for a new 'Town Deal' – which could see up to £25m to spend on improvements across the town!
This will be funded through the £3.6 billion Towns Fund, a new government scheme that will help improve where we live, work and enjoy, boost jobs and grow local economies.
The council in partnership with the Blackpool Town Deal Board, is developing a Blackpool Town Investment Plan which will present a vision for the town and describe how it will be achieved.
Thank you for having your say!
We recently asked you what you would change here in Blackpool if you had the opportunity and your response to the survey has been amazing! We’d like to thank everyone who took part in the Town Deal online survey. The Town Deal Investment Plan is still being drafted and all your comments will be taken on board and reflected in the submission.
Over 30,000 people read about the Town Deal, with over 5,400 visiting the website and making over 1,500 comments. A further 62 telephone interviews were carried out to help decide the top priorities to be put forward.
The survey site is now closed for comments whilst we process them, submit our bid to government and wait to hear if we’re successful, but you can still read about the development themes for the town and see what others have said.
