Barrow Borough Council has set a start date of next month (October) for the £1 million regeneration of Barrow Island flats, designed by Farrer Huxley with James Smith.

The team won a Landscape Institute competition for the project in 2013, The scheme has a large cetral square at its heart, and paths evolved from the trails that linked the bottoms of the communal stairways.

The aim is to create a new environment and first impression to help regenerate this section of Barrow’s run-down port area.
