The site encompasses an area of largely vacant development land extending to approximately 1.302 hectares (3.21 acres) The plot is essentially rectangular in shape though the eastern periphery forms a crescent along the B5124.

The land is mainly flat though does contain some areas of mounded earth. It is surfaced primarily with vegetation with some loose stone and hard standing also being present. The site is currently secured by mesh-panel metal fencing combined with boundaries created by the railway line and adjacent residential properties

The development site is located in the North Shore area of Blackpool near to the town centre and circa 0.7 miles (1.1 km) from the sea front. Widely recognised as an iconic tourist destination, the town of Blackpool is currently undergoing significant regeneration and investment activity to create a range of commercial, economic and employment opportunities across the region.

The site itself sits circa 400 metres from an area surrounding the Blackpool North railway station which in January 2016 was allocated as land for development as the Central Business District under Blackpool Councils Core Strategy. This forms part of the wider Talbot Gateway mixed use scheme which is currently creating circa 1 million sq.ft. of retail, commercial and community space with a new railway station entrance, transport interchange, Grade A office space and shops including a Sainsbury’s superstore.

The site is accessed by Coopers Way which extends into the plot having being constructed as part of an earlier residential phase completed circa 2008 and subsequently sold off under separate titles. Coopers Way joins Talbot Road which runs south-west towards the seafront and town centre, and connects immediately to the
B5124 providing access south to the M55 and regional motorway network via Preston New Road.

The immediate vicinity primarily comprises existing residential uses with the plot being bound by residential dwellings to the south-west and south-east boundaries, the B5214 to the east and the main railway line forming the north-west boundary.

Details of the sites planning history are outlined below with further information being accessible via Blackpool Council’s online access planning database.

In October 2006, full consent was granted for development across both the subject site and the aforementioned completed development phase under application number 05/0705 to create 64 houses comprising two and three storey units, and 36 apartments in three-storey blocks with associated vehicle and pedestrian access, public open space and landscaping. The above application was subsequently amended in September 2007 and March 2010, under applications 07/0453 and 09/1580 which modified house types at a number of plots.

Accounting for these amendments, we understand that the latest planning consent granted was for creation of 102 dwellings, 34 of which were completed and sold under the earlier phase. This leaves a remaining 68 units for development across the subject site which comprises 32 houses and 36 apartments.

Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with the Local Planning Authority.
