We need a reason to visit the town centre.
Plenty of ‘things to do’ once people are in the town centre. A bowling alley, a covered courtyard with a variety of eating places and nice bars, a revamped market area, a cinema or improved theatre facilities and a museum that show off our history all clustered together over a wide area would be good.
An improvement in the shops on offer too because once you increase footfall, people will shop. Bring in parking discounts – when you get off the train in Barrow a mess greets you! Improve that whole area too – we need to make the centre of this town from ‘travel in’ to shopping and entertainment, vibrant and welcoming, an experience from the outset.
