Muse Developments secures £220 million Blackpool redevelopment

Morgan Sindall’s urban regeneration business Muse Developments has signed a £220 million agreement to redevelop the north area of central Blackpool over the next decade.

The company has secured a contract with Blackpool Council for the redevelopment of 10 hectares in the Talbot Road area. The project will include the construction of 160,000 sq m of high-quality office and business space near Blackpool North Station. A new supermarket, hotels, shops, cafés and restaurants will also be created.

The agreement is a culmination of two years consultation alongside Blackpool Council and urban regeneration company ReBlackpool. Muse was selected as preferred developer for the scheme in 2007.

Work will begin in 2011, following a consultation period and the submission of outline planning for the scheme.
