Government announces Town Fund

Government have today announced that Barrow is one of 100 towns set to receive up to £25million as part of the Town Fund. The towns eligible include places with proud industrial and economic heritage but have not always benefitted from economic growth in the same way as more prosperous areas.

Communities, businesses and local leaders will now join forces to draw up ambitious plans to transform their town’s economic growth prospects with a focus on improved transport, broadband connectivity, skills and culture.
