Plans for the biggest single investment in Blackpool’s tourism industry for more than a century are unveiled today.
Today Blackpool has publicly announced its £300m investment plans for the key former Central Station site, on a scale befitting Blackpool’s status as the UK’s iconic popular tourism destination. Phase one, towards the Northern, promenade end of this large linear site will commence in 2020 for completion in 2024 with other phases then to follow over the following 4 to 5 years.

For those reasonably familiar with Blackpool, the site is essentially some or all of the series of major car parks on the former marshalling yards and Central Station site that runs North West (?) from the motorway link road past Blackpool football club to just short of the promenade.
