Re: AIB Blackpool
AIB Bank in Blackpool are to close their existing branch on Watercourse Road and move the business to the new Blackpool Retail Park.
The Branch on Watercourse Road was the subject of a planning application more than a year ago when the bank wanted to demolish the existing building and build a modern replacement. THis application was approved by CCC, only to be appealled by local TD Kathleen Lynch. This appeal was subsequently upheld by An Bord Pleanala.
The news of AIB’s relocation has not yet been made public and will no doubt worry locals who already see Blackpool Retail Park/Shopping centre draining the older, more established districts of shops and services.
