Blackpool and the Fylde Coast: Riding the Digital Wave

The Blackpool Pride of Place partnership has helped to generate a digital vision and narrative to help improve socio-economic 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 important component of Blackpool’s digital infrastructure.
