Vision for The Waterfront:

The Waterfront Business Park in Barrow-in-Furness is South Cumbria’s newest hub for business activity.

Our vision for the Waterfront is for the park to be the area’s “hot spot” for growing businesses, more productivity and sustainable jobs for local residents.  

If you wish to locate on this site, send us a confidential brief of your requirements including timescales.

We offer a total business support service to incoming and expanding local companies as the “area’s first choice for business support”.


The Waterfront Business Park

The Waterfront Business Park is a Gateway to Britain’s Energy Coast, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria and the Northern Powerhouse area.

It offers plots for inward investors or expanding local companies. Being situated midway between BAE Systems and the 5 wind farm bases at the port, it is also well placed to service the needs of supply chain companies.

Marketing is being undertaken by FEDF to highlight the fact that The Waterfront is an obvious hub for firms seeking to service global markets from within one of the UK’s few Assisted Areas,  The catchment area draws on highly skilled people who live and work in Furness and the Lancaster and South Cumbria Economic Region.

The Waterfront Business Park is being marketed around the world on the website www.waterfrontbarrowbp.com by FEDF (www.fedf.co.uk).
