Rhyl Regeneration: Greening Rhyl

As part of Denbighshire County Council’s commitment to make the authority net carbon zero by 2030, the council and the Welsh Government Project Transforming Towns (external website) have allocated £300k to deliver a range of green infrastructure schemes in and around Rhyl Town Centre.

The Green Infrastructure project will focus on developing and improving Green spaces in and around Rhyl Town Centre, to create new habitats, and provide ‘green corridors’ linking the town centre to biodiversity rich areas such as Brickfields Ponds, Rhyl Cut and Glan Morfa. 

The schemes include for trees, hedging and a wild flower margin at Ffordd Las Playing Fields, Wild flower meadow and improved planting schemes to replace areas of the artificial turf at West Kinmel Street car park, the addition of trees and improved planting at Crescent Street car park, the addition of trees and  planting at the Community Food Growing area on Crescent Street, a green roof bus shelter on the promenade, a green wall to the building on the corner of Wellington Road and Elwy Street and a planted area to the base of the London Plane tree outside the police station.

Ffordd Las Playing Fields

Works planned for Ffordd Las Playing Fields will commence on Monday 15th March 2021.

The works include planting a native species hedge to the perimeter of Ffordd Las Playing Fields adjacent to Ffordd Las and Marsh Road, and the inclusion of groups of trees with a wild flower meadow to the base.

General Arrangement Plan

Ffordd Las Playing Fields: General Arrangement Plan

The roadside fencing will be retained, and a fence to the inner side of the newly planted area will protect the planting and enable the playing field to be used safely.

These works are part of a wider initiative to improve Green Infrastructure in and around Rhyl Town Centre, to create new habitats, and provide ‘green corridors’ linking the town centre to biodiversity rich areas such as Brickfields Ponds, Rhyl Cut and Glan Morfa.

We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience or disruption that these works may cause.

Countryside Services will be maintaining the scheme in the future and will be watering the trees until they become established.
