Blackpool and the Fylde Coast: Riding the Digital Wave
Blackpool and the Fylde Coast. The Blackpool Pride of Place partnership has helped to generate a digital vision and narrative to help improve socioeconomic outcomes for Blackpool and to create better lives. The objective was to launch the Digital Vision publicly, so it can be easily communicated, owned by the Town and be projected for profile and growth. This vision aligns to Blackpool’s ‘2030 vision’ in the Town Prospectus.
Blackpool’s Trans-Atlantic Connectivity, which connects Blackpool to New York faster than London, will also bring economic opportunities to the town. The cable is an essential component of Blackpool’s digital infrastructure.
Communities that are thriving, socially and economically – working collectively for a meaningful, shared outcome.
Business in the Community’s (BITC) Place Programme is about bringing everyone together in a place to act collaboratively. To act on long-term goals, based on a common agreement of the challenges, opportunities and solutions and drawing on the strengths of everyone in that community, whether they are a business, a community organisation or from the public sector.
To facilitate meaningful connections between businesses, communities, and local councils to reset economic ambitions and collaborate on new, innovative solutions that will deliver long-term, transformative impact.
