BARROW'S MP has been granted planning permission for his town centre bases.

The council has given the green light to change the use of his Cavendish Street hub from a retail unit to an office.

The office space at the east end of Cavendish Street was formerly used as a shop by Ramsdens pawnbrokers, which now occupies a premises in Portland Walk.

Mr Fell and his staff applied for planning permission in February.

He was elected to parliament in December 2019 with a large majority.
