HLF to visit Thornton Gate

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) is to visit Blackpool and the proposed Thornton Gate site in Wyre Borough following a pre-application to the HLF, submitted in December 2011. This is a very positive step forward and gives the LTT the opportunity to present in more detail the plans for a Transport Heritage Centre at Thornton Gate and for HLF officers to outline their criteria for the next stages of the application process. The news follows an offer of lease from the site's owners Blackpool Borough Council.
Since 1994, the HLF have awarded £528million to more than 3,000 projects across the North West, sustaining and transforming the region's heritage.
