Blackpool

Coastal Team

The “Our Blackpool” Coastal Communities Team, launched in March 2015 and comprises a mix of public, private and community groups with a focus upon the town centre, mirroring the BID area, but with coverage over the whole of Blackpool.

The overarching priority objectives of the CCT have changed over time but currently can be outlined as:

Priority Theme 1 : To work together and alongside other groups across the town, to generate a footfall  increase  in Blackpool, by helping to develop initiatives that capitalise upon Blackpool’s strong cultural, leisure and retail offer.

The focus of this will be through supporting the development and delivery of events and marketing initiatives across the town.

Priority Theme 2 : To undertake project development and bid development activity to support initiatives across the town.  The CCT will provide advice and approvals to others undertaking bid submissions as appropriate (e.g. CCF applications.)

Our Blackpool CCT, has supported delivery of the Coastal Communities Funded “LightPool” scheme which delivered a major impact on the visitor economy offer and supported the retail sector. See the following link.   http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-lancashire-33641666/blackpool-illuminations-to-feature-new-vegas-lightshow

In April 2017, Blackpool Council and Blackpool CCT, were successful in securing funding from the CCF towards the cost of a new £25m Conference Centre in the Iconic Winter Gardens.  The below images show an architects illustration of how the final scheme will look when complete (June 19).  The new centre will help the town re-establish its presence as a leading conference destination.
