Blackpool Airport

I believe the money should be spent on reopening Blackpool Airport, this would improve transport links to the town and to other areas around Lancashire & Cumbria. People used Blackpool Airport in preference than travelling to Manchester & Liverpool.
This would also create jobs at the airport and possibly other employers might redeploy to the Enterprise Zone.
Also as the town is regenerating, the new conference centre and the better class hotels being built we should have an airlink.
If the airport was to reopen link the tram system to the airport via the train station at Squires Gate.
Move the Royal Mail Sorting Office to the Enterprise Zone it would give better access for mail and goods by road, train or air. In the past it has been said Blackpool has missed out on jobs due to the poor transport links.
To improve the quality of life in Blackpool we need better jobs which pay decent money, we shouldn’t just rely on tourism.
