Barrow Borough Council has secured £16m in funding through the Government's Levelling Up Fund to support the regeneration of Barrow Town Centre.

These projects are: • Improving the Market Hall and the frontage and access to the Forum Theatre • Enhancing access to these cultural assets/attractions and connecting them to the rest of the town through better transport infrastructure and improvements to the public realm. These projects represent a high impact scheme that will transform the character and attractiveness of the town centre and improve accessibility to this area from all modes of transport providing the catalyst to increase footfall and deliver lasting change.
