A design competition launched on 1 May to design the public realm around tenement flats in Barrow Island, Barrow-in-Furness.
Hosted by Barrow Borough Council and run by the Landscape Institute, the competition aims to improve the public realm around a series of four-storey tenement flats that currently have high vacancy rates.
Part of the regeneration of the port area of the town, the project has funding from the Homes and Communities Agency’s Clusters of Empty Homes Fund.
Entrants to the competition will need to address a tarmacked central courtyard that is currently used for car parking, two grassy squares that adjoin residential areas, and the streetscape.
The closing date for expressions of interest is Friday 31 May.
