Boxpark-style venue coming to Blackpool
Southbeach Streetfood has submitted an application to redevelop a vacant site close to Blackpool Pleasure Beach into a food and drink destination.
Plans for the scheme would see 18 shipping containers installed at Flagstaff Gardens, located opposite Sandcastle waterpark.
“The ethos for Southbeach Streetfood is to deliver high quality, authentic streetfood in an ethical, considerate, and sustainable way for both passing tourists and local Blackpool residents,” according to a design and access statement prepared by Joseph Boniface Architects.
The use of shipping containers to create space for food vendors has been seen across various schemes in the UK including Hatch in Manchester, Stack in Newcastle and Boxpark in London.
JMP North West is the planning consultant advising Southbeach Streetfood on the Blackpool project.
