A Rhyl business hub located on the site of a former court building has been officially opened.
Hannah James has transformed the County Court on Clwyd Street, which closed in 2016, into a business hub with meeting and function rooms.
She has been supported with a grant from Denbighshire County Council to purchase equipment to help her kit out the building, renamed Clwyd Chambers, and also received support from Business Wales.
More than 50 guests took a tour of the new hub, which includes 13 flexible small business units, during the opening.
Chartered building surveyor Hannah said: “It was great to see so many people take an interest and to have the opportunity to show them what Clwyd Chambers and Rhyl have to offer. I’d like to thank everyone who came along to make it such a fantastic day.
“We have already got businesses signed up to take on some of the units and have taken bookings for the function and meeting rooms.”
Hannah, a former Rhyl High School pupil, chose her home town as she was impressed by the amount of public investment in Rhyl and said she was passionate about supporting the town through business growth and development.
She is also providing a training centre for collaborative working for small businesses at the site.
In addition to the work being carried out by Denbighshire County Council on the town’s new waterpark, the refurbishment of the Pavilion Theatre and the opening of 1891, a Premier Inn hotel will be opening in February and work on a 73-bedroomTravelodge and family restaurant started last month.
