A better Blackpool

We're committed to making Blackpool better for everyone and our town is currently seeing some exciting changes, including new places to shop and eat, new housing, better public transport and more modern, greener streets.

We want to create a more attractive place to live, with a thriving economy, leading to more jobs for local people.

During the regeneration, we will do our best to keep you up-to-date with planned roadworks on the roadworks pages


Business growth

With the development of the Enterprise Zone, an upgraded town centre business hub, £30m conference centre, an ambitious plan to see businesses accessing the latest full fibre gigabit internet connectivity, as well as tonnes of business support and advice on offer, there’s so much to look forward to for businesses currently operating in Blackpool or those considering locating here. 


Housing and communities

We’re building new, high-quality social housing and also converting empty, run-down private accommodation into family homes to significantly increase the number of properties available for local residents.


Town Centre

New 4* hotels, better, greener public transport, more leisure facilities; and the relocation of 1000s of jobs into the town centre, increasing spend and supporting local businesses.

Developing and extending Blackpool’s tourism season with new attractions and updating existing ones. Attracting investment more visitors, additional spend and providing local jobs all year round.


Skills, education and employment

From starting school to finding employment, we believe everyone in Blackpool should have the best access to education and guidance to help them succeed and achieve in their chosen career. With an ambitious school improvement programme, various employment support services, as well as the development of a world-class learning environment in partnership with Lancaster University, the future is bright.
