Denbighshire County Council welcomes the allocation of funding towards future projects in Rhyl.

Following the announcement of the spring budget, Denbighshire has been allocated £20 million as a part of the Long-Term Plan for Towns initiative to develop a long-term plan to support Rhyl.

The endowment-style funding will provide certainty to deliver projects over the ten-year lifespan of the programme, and flexibility to invest in interventions based on local needs and wants.

Denbighshire County Council will work alongside a newly created Town Board to collaborate with local stakeholders to ensure that the funding is used to deliver a shared vision for the town.

Jason McLellan Leader and Lead Member for Economic Growth &Tackling Deprivation said:

“I welcome the recent announcement of further funding towards our plans to develop Rhyl. It’s pleasing that the Government shares our faith and vision in investing in our towns, and it’s encouraging that the Government recognises Denbighshire’s priorities and has belief in our vision and strong leadership of the County.

This additional £20m of Levelling Up Funding to Rhyl, on top of the £35m of Levelling Up Funding already provided to Denbighshire across the constituency areas of Clwyd South, Clwyd West and Vale of Clwyd, clearly shows confidence in the Council’s Cabinet and Management to deliver on a change agenda, to support and develop our communities.

Rhyl has a wonderful community and like many towns has its challenges, therefore I look forward to working with the Town Board to deliver for the community”.
