Homebase gets green light on new Blackpool store

Home improvement retailer Homebase has confirmed plans to return to Blackpool.

The DIY retailer is set to take over the former Argos Store and Pets at Home store on Blackpool Retail Park after its planning application was approved by both Blackpool Council and Fylde Council.

A Homebase store has previously operated on the retail park and its return will also include a garden centre.

In statement confirming the decision, the application said: “Economically, the proposal would facilitate bringing an empty retail unit back into use, generating employment opportunities, without impacting on the vitality and viability of the town centre hierarchy. On this basis, the proposal is considered to be economically sustainable.”
