AREAS badly hit by storm and flood damage in North Wales will benefit from further government funds.

The Welsh Government announced today (Wednesday, March 5) that it had allocated an extra £723,000 for flood-hit areas in Conwy and Denbighshire.

Economy Minister Edwina Hart AM and Finance Minister Jane Hutt AM announced a further £256,000 for Denbighshire County Council, and £467,000 for Conwy County Borough Council.

Denbighshire's funds will be put towards helping the area's tourism infrastructure back on its feet after the floods - including repairs to beach access at Rhyl - with the aim of ensuring all areas are open for business before Easter. 

The funds given to Conwy will go towards repairing the promenade at Deganwy quay, as well as the cycle track running between Llandudno and Deganwy. 

Edwina Hart AM said: "This funding will help speed up repairs to damaged infrastructure that could have had a negative impact at the start of the main tourism season in Wales.

"Wales is open for businesses, but we want to ensure areas affected by the winter storms are fully open for 2014.
