Blackpool Transport has registered some service changes from Sunday 2 April, including the withdrawal of services 8 and 10 and the return of service 2. Limited details are available so far, but the effected services are:

1 - revised timetable
New 2 Blackpool Town Centre to Cleveleys via Poulton and Victoria Hospital (Monday to Sunday) returning service 2 to its traditional Poulton route.
2C - revised timetable
6 route and timetable change  
7 - revised timetable

10 - withdrawn
14 - route and timetable change
15/16 - route and timetable change
17 - route and timetable change
New 20 Marton Mere to Blackpool Town Centre via Zoo and Stanley Park from 1 April to 5 November every weekend and daily to 23/4, daily 27 May to 4 June, Daily in August and from 31 October to 5 November.
Schools 12, 400, 401, 403 and 414 are also retimed.

It is expected that the 25 new Enviro 400 City double deckers will enter service on 2 April. It is rumored that the 14, for which they are intended will only run Fleetwood to Blackpool now with the 6 reinstated to Mereside, so presumably a further route will be treated to these impressive new vehicles.
