Plans in for Blackpool apartments
An outline application for the construction of a four-storey apartment block on Boothley Road has been submitted.
The development would provide 8,000 sq ft of housing across 14 two-bedroom apartments close to Blackpool town centre.
The site is currently occupied by a three-storey office block being used by the Well Church, as well as a single-storey warehouse most recently occupied by a self-storage provider but now vacant.
The existing buildings would be demolished as part of the project.
The applicant is Michelle Naylor, listed on Companies House as director of a firm called Savoy Sports and Leisure, which owns a further three properties in Blackpool including two on nearby Talbot Road.
RDJ Creative has drawn up plans for the scheme.
The surrounding area has been subject to several developments in recent years.
In the immediate vicinity, plans for 25 affordable homes on a neighbouring site, lodged by local builder Tyson Construction, were approved by the council last year, while phase two of Talbot Gateway, which includes a £23.4m tramway extension and a 144-bedroom Holiday Inn and restaurant, is underway.
