A new wedding venue scheme, designed by UK-based de Rijke Marsh Morgan Architects, has been approved by Blackpool Council.

The £2.7m project, which will be situated near the resort’s tower, is part of the £14.3m Tower Headland development.

The project is backed by ReBlackpool, Blackpool’s urban regeneration company.

The new building will be built using sustainable building materials such as prefabricated, cross-laminated timber to reduce carbon emissions.
