RHYL’S iconic Sky Tower could be transformed into a fairground ride or a climbing tower as part of ambitious regeneration proposals for the resort.
Denbighshire County Council officers have vowed the 240ft attraction, despite closing in 2011 due to health and safety and repair issues, will remain.
Tom Booty, project manager for Rhyl Going Forward, said: “The Sky Tower is iconic for the town.
“There are a number of things being explored.”
It could also become a platform to showcase urban art or a link with the new £10m aquatic centre, planned as a replacement for the town’s ageing Sun Centre, and feature LED lighting.
It is hoped the Children’s Village, which officials admitted had “never been successful”, would benefit from the proposed developments.
The skate park, currently sited next to the cinema will be relocated, and car parking at the Sky Tower will be replaced by improvements to the underground car park.
