Work to demolish the Queen’s Buildings has resumed following a slight pause.
The demolition was temporarily put on hold whilst structural engineers and contractors worked to determine the safe demolition of the remaining buildings and the removal of asbestos.
Although the project has made positive progress, with just over half of the buildings already demolished, the pause means the demolition phase will be completed later than initially planned.
The Queen’s Buildings has been named as the ‘key catalyst’ project within the Council’s wider Rhyl Regeneration programme.
Cllr Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire County Council and Lead Member for the Economy, said: “It was important to pause the project to ensure the safety of the public and building’s operatives. I am pleased the areas of concern have been resolved and the demolition work can now continue.
“The contractors have already made good progress with the demolition and I am looking forward to watching the project develop further towards the next phases.”
Although work on these buildings has resumed, elements of the Queen’s Market are still open to the public from the High Street entrance.
Stores that continue to trade in here are Lynn’s Hair pieces, Top Shelf Vapes, Pennywise Cards and Gifts and Steve’s Vac’s.
