Since 2007 we’ve been responsible for managing almost 5000 properties on Blackpool Council’s behalf.

Blackpool Coastal Housing (BCH) is a wholly owned company set up by the Council to manage its housing stock and provide related services to its tenant and leasehold customers.

The company is overseen by a board of 12 (four elected members, four tenants and four independents), has its own dedicated staff and is funded by a fee paid from the Council’s Housing Revenue Account.
