During this difficult period we are experiencing significant pressures and need to prioritise services for those that are most vulnerable in our communities.
All of our customer service centres are closed to the public to avoid the potential further spread of coronavirus, especially amongst those most at risk. We are maintaining an essential and emergency phone service to support the most vulnerable.
You can access most Barrow Borough Council services online (https://www.barrowbc.gov.uk) and payments can still be made using our 24 hour automated payments line on 0845 603 1510. Please Note, calls to this number cost 7p per minute plus your telephone company's network access charge.
If you have an urgent enquiry, you can email us using the addresses listed below, but please only do this if your enquiry is genuinely urgent. Please enter “telephone enquiry” in the subject field of your email and include as much detail relating to your query as possible. We will respond to you by email as quickly as possible.
Business Support: For information on current coronavirus information that impacts on businesses, in the first instance please refer to www.businesssupport.gov.uk . Further information will be posted on our website in the next few days.
Email enquiries will be prioritised and the most urgent dealt with quickly.
