Blackpool’s iconic football stadium has been secured as a community asset.

Seasiders Independent Supporters Association (SISA) lodged an application with Blackpool Council to make the Seasiders’ Bloomfield Road stadium an Asset of Community Value under the Localism Act of 2011 in December.

And in a historic move, councillors last night voted in favour of granting the status to the stadium.

SISA’s application was the first of its kind to be submitted to the authority and will ensure Bloomfield Road cannot be sold without six weeks’ notice first being given to the interested parties.
