Proposals show the radio station, currently based at Waterloo Road, plans to renovate the inside of the building to turn it into an internet radio studio. It would also put the outside grounds in ‘good order’.

Coun Christian Cox who represents the Squires Gate ward said he was ‘absolutely delighted ‘ to hear about the Fylde Coast Radio plans and gave his full support behind the plans.

He added: “I am confident these plans will be of great benefit to the local area and also Blackpool as a whole. The renovation of the site will improve the appearance of the site which will benefit both nearby residents and the neighbouring boat clubs and Blackpool Transport tram depot.

Planning officers will now consider the application before making a decision.

The site has been closed for a number of years.
