The “Our Blackpool” Coastal Communities Team comprises a mix of public, private and community groups with a geographical focus upon the town centre, which mirrors the BID area.
The overarching Objectives of the CCT have been determined as : –
- Priority Theme 1 : To encourage and undertake activity to grow Blackpool’s early evening economy
- Priority Theme 2 : To generate an increase in footfall via developing initiatives capitalising upon Blackpool’s strong cultural, leisure and retail offer
- Priority Theme 3 : To devise and increase activities which will engage and involve the local community with the town, including developing employment and skills opportunities
- Priority Theme 4 : To undertake activities which will make Blackpool desirable to visit, attractive and safe
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.
