Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “This scheme is part of a wider regeneration project which aims to encourage the economic revitalisation of Blackpool town centre through a programme of highways, public realm and building improvement works.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for building owners or businesses to improve their properties at very little cost to themselves. I would encourage businesses in the designated area to get in touch and speak to a member of the team who can talk them through the application process.
“We have run similar schemes in the past and it is amazing to see what a difference exterior works can make to the whole appearance of a street or area.”
The scheme will run until March 2020.
