Planning Permission Granted for Lancashire Energy HQ

Blackpool and the Fylde College has been granted planning permission for the construction of the Lancashire Energy HQ on Blackpool Airport Enterprise Zone.

The facility, that will act as a training base for the energy sector, will be one of the flagship developments on the Enterprise Zone. It will be constructed on the site of the former Blackpool Airport terminal building and adjoining parking areas, having been purchased by Blackpool and the Fylde College from Balfour Beatty. Air-side facilities will be relocated closer to the runway.

Construction activity is expected to begin on-site in summer 2016, with completion due in Autumn 2017.
