Welcome to Blackpool Heritage Action Zone

Your high street, your heritage.

The High Street Heritage Action Zone is aimed at using Blackpool’s high street heritage as a catalyst for bringing new and diverse uses to the town centre. The idea is to do this through a mix of building restoration projects and engaging creative activities.

The way in which we shop and our reasons for visiting town centres are changing.  Online retail and out of town shopping and leisure developments are a part of that but that doesn’t mean we can’t keep our high streets vibrant and interesting for local communities and our visitors.

Blackpool Council has spent the last ten years investing in key heritage assets like Blackpool Tower and Blackpool Winter Gardens along with investment in quality public realm around St John’s Church and the surrounding conservation area. They followed this up in 2019 with a  two year programme of investment in shopfronts in partnership with the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership
