Interest is continuing to grow in Barrow's Waterfront development, with the number of hits on it's website jumping by 300% every month.
Millions of pounds is being spent at the site, to transform it into a multi use residential and business development and marina.
Earlier this week, work started on the site's link road, which is expected to take around 6 months to build.
The developers told The Bay on Monday, they are not just building a new development - they're "building a new Barrow".
Thousands of users are looking at the site each month to establish what the waterfront offers. Information is key and evidently people are hungry to see the evolving site online and learn more about the plans for Barrow’s latest business park by visiting the website - click here if you want to take a look.
July saw the dedicated website see its largest number of visitors. Latest figures show it's receiving 300% more visitors per month since its creation. This year usage has increased, reflecting the approaching completion of the industrial area.
The website clearly outlines the plans for the business park and shows progress to date and more importantly, how businesses interested in relocating to the waterfront can access help and support from Furness Enterprise.
Stuart Klosinski, Industrial Development Manager, Furness Enterprise, comments: “The website is proving a huge success. To date we have received over 100 enquiries from businesses wanting further information to relocate on the Waterfront. Many have used the site to glean what the potential is here before making a direct approach. We have also seen the local economy boosted by over £3 million with work undertaken to date”.
The development of Ramsden Business Park and the wider Waterfront Business Park adds to Barrow’s appeal as a unique business location. It will diversify and expand the economy of Barrow and West Cumbria acting as a flagship for the economic regeneration of the town.
