‘‘Unsightly’ signs and ‘poorly kept’ buildings have been targeted by Blackpool Council’s enforcement team.

Tim Coglan, Blackpool Council’s head of public protection and enforcement, said letters have been sent to a number of addresses demanding action is taken.

One recipient is the owner of 175 Promenade, who ‘has allowed signage under their control to remain of an unsightly appearance, namely advertising ‘Derek’s Tattoos’,’ documents added.

The owners of 42 Exchange Street in North Shore, and 6 Central Drive, were issued notices relating to the properties’ poor condition, papers revealed.

Planning enforcement is also expected at 50 Lyndhurst Avenue and 40 Kenilworth Gardens, both in South Shore after extensions were built without permission, Mr Coglan told councillors.
