Multi-million pound plans to transform the sea defences at Anchorsholme have taken a step forward as they got the green light from councillors.
Members of Blackpool Council’s planning committee have approved the £24m scheme.
A 1km stretch of the coastal defences between Kingsway and Little Bispham is set to be rebuilt to protect against flooding.
Chairman of the planning committee Coun David Owen said: “The work that has taken place on the Cleveleys side is very impressive.
“It will certainly add to the tourism offer in that part of town.”
Government funding for the scheme, which includes £55m to improve defences between Rossall Hospital and Rossall Point in Fleetwood, has been agreed in principle.
