CALLS have been made for developers behind Rhyl’s stalled Ocean Plaza site to “get it done or get out”.
Six months after a public consultation on new plans for the former fun fair site on Rhyl’s West Parade, Scarborough Development Group is yet to submit a revised planning application.
But Scarborough say they are still committed to bringing the ambitious project to fruition.
Lee Savage, development director at Scarborough, said: “The planning application has not yet been lodged as we are still in the process of resolving some issues with Denbighshire County Council.
“However we will submit the application as soon as we can.
“The scheme we announced last September hasn’t changed and we are still committed to bringing this project forward for Rhyl.”
More than 350 jobs could be created as part the £55 million development to include a supermarket and petrol station, 62-bed hotel, pub, and housing.
Cllr Joan Butterfield said Denbighshire Council needed to be “bold” with developers in getting work started on the site.
She said: “People are getting sick of waiting.
“It is a disgrace.
“The planning application should have been submitted in January.
“It is about time Denbighshire Council say get it done or get out.”
Cllr Butterfield said with developments on the new £10 million Aquatic Centre, the harbour and work to demolish the former Honey Club the empty site was holding the town back.
She said: “We have got to have some vision to see more than a supermarket on a valuable piece of land like Ocean Plaza.
“If we are a seaside resort we really should be looking at something to accommodate people.”
Cllr Butterfield said there could be potential for a quality hotel and spa with a conference centre, surrounded by parkland.
A spokesman for Denbighshire Council revealed details of the “issues” referred to by Scarborough.
He said: “It relates to the fact that they are required to update and produce a flood consequences assessment for the site.
“They are in discussions with the Environment Agency Wales on this.”
