Cllr Graham Cain, Blackpool Council's cabinet member for tourism and leisure, said: "The Dreamland restoration plans are is a real community effort and have attracted great support.
"It's pleasing that Blackpool will be able to make a contribution to such a historic landmark.
"We wish all the Dreamland team the very best with their project."

Blackpool's world-famous illuminations came about in the 1870s when the council awarded £5,000 to experiment with electric street lighting.
Dr Siemens' eight dynamo-electric machines, powered by 16 Robey engines, were switched on in September 1879 to power eight arc lamps on along the seafront emitting light equivalent to 48,000 candles with approximately 100,000 people from across the UK travelling to marvel at the spectacle.
