Rhyl Secures Funding For Green Infrastructure Transformation

Rhyl town council has secured £270,000 of funding to create green infrastructure schemes that aim to transform Rhyl town centre and the surrounding area.

This is part of a £5m funding pool allocated to green infrastructure and biodiversity projects within Welsh town centres, itself a part of the £90m Transforming Towns fund.

The Rhyl project, in particular, is focused on creating new habitats around the town centre, which can link habitats near storage in Rhyl’s town centre to Glan Morfa, Brickfields Ponds and Rhyl Cut through the creation of wildlife corridors.

Specifically, wildflower beds, trees and hedges will replace some artificial turf at Ffordd Las fields and the West Kinmel Street car park, and better planting and tress will be added to Crescent Street’s community food growing area and car park.

As well this, a green roof bus shelter will be added to the Promenade, as well as a green wall to the corner of Wellington Road and Elwy street, and a planting area outside of the police station.

A key part of the success of the scheme will the involvement of the local community, and Denbighshire County Council is working with volunteers to help make a greener Rhyl a reality and help their plans to ensure the authority is net carbon zero by 2030.

This work is part of a ‘Town Centre First’ approach advocated by the Welsh Government to prioritise placing building, services and schemes in town centres wherever that can be accomplished, to help revitalise towns and cities.
