Council Reveals Plans for Rhyl Area Harbour Development

Denbighshire County Council has announced plans for the Rhyl area harbour development works.

Council has also announced that planning is approved in the area west of Foryd Harbour, Rhyl, Conwy, for the construction of a new jetty and quay wall, dredging of the deep water channel in the harbour, restoration of the sand dune area as well as the construction of a new public square and a building for a harbour master and commercial use, including a cafe.

Plans for a bridge linking Rhyl with Kinmel Bay have also been approved.

The plan includes improvements to an existing boat yard and car parking, as well as sand dune restoration on an area known as Horton’s Nose, close to Sunny Vale Holiday Park and Rhyl Yacht Club. A new pontoon is also featured in the plans along with improvements to the navigation aids and additional moorings with wheelchair access. The bridge part of the development was approved in principle last year.
