A prime residential development opportunity offering approximately 2.37 acres of part developed land which has the benefit of full planning permission ref: B07/2016/0897 for 55 dwellings, providing a mix of apartments and terraced, semi-detached and detached dwellings.


The residential development has commenced with 10 of the units complete, 6 units developed to foundation stage and 3 units developed to first floor. The site has the benefit of a Highways England approved and adopted estate road with services to site including water, gas, electric and telephone cabling. It is understood that Barrow Town Council have indicated that the rear development of 23 apartments can be altered to provide 13 additional houses, subject to planning.




The subject development site is situated to the south of Ironworks Road and a short distance to the north of BAE Systems at the south western aspect of Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, in the North West of England.


Barrow-in-Furness is situated on the southern tip of Cumbria, to the north of Morecambe Bay and only 20 minutes from The Lake District. Barrow’s principal road link is the A590, linking it to Ulverston, The Lake District and the M6 motorway.


The town is a sub regional centre with a very well defined catchment population in excess of 100,000 incorporating neighbouring towns such as Dalton, Ulverston and Millom.


The site is situated on Ironworks Road and close to A590 Hindpool Road in a high profile position adjacent and to the north of BAE Systems and Devonshire Dock and immediately south of Furness College and Trinity Enterprise Centre and to the west of Hollywood Retail Park. The A590 is the main arterial route providing direct access in and out of Barrow-in-Furness and also leads to the A5087 Hindpool Road, approximately 500m to the east that travels into Barrow-in-Furness town centre, a 5 minute drive away.


The surrounding area provides a mixture of uses including trade counter, retail warehouse, residential and commercial with BAE Systems operating a number of the buildings and docks in the immediate vicinity. Other surrounding users include Premier Inn, Furness College, Tesco and The Dock Museum.




The subject site comprises approximately 0.96 hectares (2.37 acres) of cleared and partly developed residential development land forming a single site being relatively level and regular in shape bounded by a front estate wall which will continue throughout the scheme and form the boundary of the site upon completion. The site is ideally located within close proximity to BAE Systems Barrow-in-Furness largest employer, retail parks and industrial estates, Barrow College and Barrow in Furness town centre.


The southern boundary adjoins a mixture of open land and industrial developments and beyond is Premier Inn and Barrow Dock Museum. The western boundary connects to Channelside Road and to the east is Hollywood Retail Park.


The land has the benefit of planning permission Ref: B07/2016/0897 for 55 dwellings which includes 23 apartments, 21 terrace properties, 8 semi-detached dwellings and 3 detached dwellings. It is understood that Barrow Borough Council would consider an amended proposal for the 23 apartments to be altered to provide 13 dwellings, subject to planning. A plan of the proposed alteration is provided within the information pack.


Access is taken from Ironworks Road and through the development via a central road which splits into three sections with pedestrian routes which are constructed to adoptable standards up to the central aspect of the site.
