There will also be a series of walkways linking the estate with the Promenade and town centre, and a communal garden, and 70 of the homes will be built for Great Places Housing Group which provides affordable housing.

The £50m scheme, dubbed Foxhall Village, already has outline permission, but once detailed designs are approved and site clearance has been completed, it is hoped building work can begin later this year and be finished by 2020.

Hollinwood Homes, part of the Marcus Worthington group, proposes to name the streets after Blackpool FC’s 1953 FA Cup winning team.

Mark Chadwick, residential development director of Hollinwood Homes, said: “We are pleased to be edging ever closer to starting work on this fantastic development, which will provide quality new homes for a range of buyers, in a superb central location.

“The houses we are building at Foxhall Village will be attractive, highly energy efficient, with flexible living spaces, good parking arrangements and plenty of outdoor space and at highly affordable prices.

“By creating effectively two new developments, and starting work on them both simultaneously, we are creating an entire new community which will benefit residents immensely.”

Access to the Prom for new home-owners

A total of 410 houses will be built overall, with the first phase being for 218 properties.

These will comprise of 42 four-bedroomed homes, 114 three bedroomed, 53 two bedroomed and nine two bedroomed flats.

The main access points to the development for traffic will be via Rigby Road, Princess Street and a proposed South Boundary Road.

Parking will be a mix of off-street and on-street, with some visitor parking also provided.

It is proposed that landscaping will reflect the seaside setting of the development and will include informal open spaces and children’s play areas as well as a communal garden for residents.

There will also be additional pedestrian and cycle access throughout the site focusing on promoting through routes from Revoe Park to

the Promenade.
