Work due to begin on a £1.2 million environmental improvement project in St Asaph

Work is due to begin soon on the £1.2 million environmental improvement project for council tenants in St Asaph.

The project will deliver a number of improvements including highways and footpath reconstruction, together with environmental landscaping. On completion, the area will benefit from better parking facilities, traffic calming measures and open area landscaping. Investment in the project will come from Denbighshire Housing, with support from the wider County Council and the Welsh Government.

Dawnus have been appointed as the contractor to deliver this project.  They have a wealth of experience in both building and civil projects and said:  “Dawnus are extremely pleased to be awarded this prestigious improvement scheme at Bro Havard and look forward to working with Denbighshire County Council and the local community to deliver a successful project with minimum disruption to residents”.

From the 11 September, Dawnus will have a presence in and around the Stanley Park area, where a site compound will be set up.  During this first week, Dawnus will be visiting each property in the area affected by the improvements and will meet residents to discuss the project with them.

Councillor Tony Thomas, Cabinet Lead Member for Housing, said: “We look forward to working with the local community to deliver these improvements and create a vibrant environment that they can be proud to be a part of. This is one of a number of community based projects underway across the county, with a firm commitment by the team to improving the quality of life for local people through quality developments.”

Further key dates during the project are:

  • Week commencing 18 September:  highways and footpath reconstruction will start on Phase 1
  • January to March 2018:  landscaping and environmental improvements will begin
  • We expect the project to be completed in summer 2018 

Regular updates about the project will be available on the project noticeboard at Stanley Park and also on Denbighshire Housing’s Facebook Page @TaiSirDdinbych.DenbighshireHousing.
