Housing Renewal

Housing Renewal

THE Housing Renewal project is a multi-million pound scheme that will see investment in almost 300 residential properties across Barrow along with 39 commercial properties.

The focus will be on a number of buildings in the neighbourhoods of Barrow Island and Rawlinson Street.

Funding will be used to carry out improvements to 16 residential properties and 39 commercial premises on Rawlinson Street.

The second phase will see improvements made to up to 279 residential properties in the area of Ferry Road Triangle, Barrow Island.

The planned improvements will have a significant impact on the wellbeing of local residents and improve perceptions of Barrow as a great place to live.

The improvements at the residential properties will lead to a reduction in carbon emissions of 367 tonnes per year, helping to lower energy bills for householders and contributing towards the borough’s goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2037.

Work on Rawlinson Street is due to get underway first following by work on the Ferry Road Triangle. All schemes are expected to be completed by 2025.

It is anticipated the project will create jobs over the period of works being carried out.
