Phase two starts of Poultopn re-development

The first phase of the £19m refurbishment of the Teanlowe Centre in Poulton le Fylde is now virtually complete including works to the Market Place Mall and relocating three existing mall tenants: Poulton Optical Centre, Homecare Walkabout and Bodycare who are now installed in their new premises.

The fully glazed entrance to Market Place is now fully operational and will remain so on a permanent basis with no further mall closure.

The second phase of work is now starting on demolition of part of the centre and upgrading of the Teanlowe car park, to create the new Booths' foodstore. The Teanlowe car park entrance will be hoarded off to maintain safe access from the car park to the Market Place Mall, which will be maintained throughout the project.

Works on the car park will be carried out in three phases until the end of January next year. Throughout this period at least two thirds of the car park will be available for use at any time, as illustrated on the site plan. The existing bus lay-by has been relocated to Blackpool Old Road and the entrance into the Teanlowe Centre closed, enabling stripping out and demolition of the empty shops now to take place. Pedestrian access from Blackpool Old Road to the Teanlowe car park and Market Place Mall will now be via either Market Place or Village Walks, off Queensway.
