Current Consultation – New Office Development on King Street, Talbot Gateway, Blackpool

Please give us your feedback

Thank you for taking the time to visit and contribute to our virtual consultation about Muse Development’s proposals for new offices and a health assessment centre on land at Kings Street, Talbot Gateway, Blackpool.

Unfortunately, due to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we cannot hold a face-to-face consultation event. However, your views are still very important to us. Therefore, this website has been set up to provide members of the public with information about the scheme proposals and collect your views on the proposals.

In March 2021, a hybrid planning consent (LPA Ref. 20/0751) was granted at the site which established the principles of a new ground plus six storey office building that includes a health assessment centre on the ground flood, a new surface car park and new public realm.

Muse Developments is now preparing to submit the ‘reserved matters’ which will seek approval for the detailed matters and design proposals such as the layout, scale and appearance of the building, as well as the materials to be used. The planning application will be submitted shortly.

The proposals will create new Grade A office space, including a health assessment centre in a new high-quality landmark building in this important Town Centre location.

The proposed development will transform a previously developed site in Talbot Gateway, which is a key regeneration priority for the Council. This application follows earlier phases of development already brought forward by Muse and Blackpool Council, including the Sainsburys supermarket, Talbot multi storey car park and the new Council offices.

The proposed new office building will be a high quality design which will respect the adjoining Town Centre Conservation Area whilst significantly improving the physical appearance of the site, thereby delivering the objectives of the Talbot Gateway masterplan.

Public realm is a key component of the proposals. King Street will be pedestrianised and new areas of public realm are proposed including a new public square and lawns, together with new landscape planting along King Street and East Topping Street.

Your views are important to help us develop our final detailed scheme design and are very much appreciated. Please use the survey available on the ‘Feedback’ button to the right of this page to submit comments or alternatively send your feedback to: planningconsultations.uk@avisonyoung.com, or give us a call on 0161 956 4176.

We would be grateful if you could please provide your feedback by Wednesday 23rd June.

There will be a further opportunity to comment on the final proposals through Blackpool Council’s own consultation process once the planning submission is made and the application becomes live.
