HUNDREDS of people have been having their say on Rhyl’s Ocean Plaza development.
Scarborough Development Group hosted a pair of consultation events at Rhyl Town Hall last week giving members of the public their first chance to view the new plans for the former fun fair site.
More than 350 jobs could be created as part the £55 million mixed-use scheme to include an Asda supermarket and petrol station, 62-bed hotel, pub, and housing.
Lee Savage, development director at Scarborough, said: “Phase one of the project is about changing the perception of the area in order to make it more appealing and interesting.
“We’ve tried to come up with a solution that we can soon start delivering.”
Plans also include a proposed new link road between Wellington Road and West Parade.
Rhyl mayor, councillor William Tasker, said: “People I have spoken to are excited about it. It will be done at the same time as the second part of the harbour development.
“That end of Rhyl is looking really positive for the end of next year.
“Job creation is to be welcomed, it is not just the jobs in construction but jobs that will follow on.
“It is good for the town.
“The reaction I have had off people is really positive.”
Representatives from the Manchester-based group took charge of the project two years ago after original developers Modus Properties Limited went into administration.
