A planning application has been submitted for the Talbot Gateway scheme in Blackpool, UK, by the developer Muse.

The £220m mixed-use development is expected to regenerate the north-eastern part of the town around Blackpool North Station and Talbot Road.

The design proposal comprises 85,000m² of new office and business space, a food superstore, hotels, shops, cafes and restaurants. It will also include new headquarters for Blackpool Borough Council.

Construction is expected to start on site in 2011, after obtaining planning permission.

Blackpool Council, ReBlackpool and the North-West Development Agency will jointly develop the proposal.
