Denbighshire County Council has purchased a terrace of properties in Queen Street in Rhyl to redevelop the site as part of its wider plans to regenerate the town centre and Planning permission was granted in February for a mixed development of ground floor retail units and apartments on the upper floors.
A survey carried out by structural engineers raised concerns over the condition of some parts of the buildings and this led to the closure of part of Queen Street to traffic earlier this year. Works to install scaffolding to provide support to the structure have now been completed and contractors will be moving on site to start work on taking some of the properties down on Monday. The demolition works will be completed as quickly as possible and Queen Street will be reopened to through traffic before the school holidays in July.
During the demolition works, access for pedestrians to Queen Street will be fully maintained and businesses are unaffected and will remain open as usual.
The Council would like to apologise once again for any inconvenience the works may cause to vehicles and thanks residents and visitors of the town centre for their continued co-operation.
