Northern Trust has confirmed planning permission has been granted for the regeneration of part of the former Blackpool Pontins site.


The illustrative residential scheme of 275 units includes a wide range of properties, from apartments to detached family homes and will also include a significant proportion of affordable homes.


A spokesperson on behalf of Northern Trust commented “Due to the current shortfall in the supply of housing, Northern Trust understands the importance of delivering new and affordable homes to the local community. The Company are therefore delighted that the planning application for part of the Blackpool site has been approved. The company will now look to commence a disposal strategy and enter into negotiations with prospective house builders. ”


The planning application submitted to Fylde Borough Council covers approximately 22 acres of the 39 acre brownfield site. Northern Trust will now work closely with the local authority to bring about the regeneration of the remainder of the site.
