A former snooker club in the west end of Rhyl will be demolished as part of the town’s regeneration scheme.
The Breaks Snooker Club looks set to be knocked down after it was brought by Denbighshire County Council – the site will be set aside for future development projects.
The snooker club was home to Rhyl’s first nightclub, the Dixieland Showbar, which later became Brunel’s Discotheque. Last year, a former tackle shop on the West Parade site was also razed to the ground after the building was brought by the council.
A spokesman said work on the club would be starting shortly ”to ensure that the area is ready to accommodate future developments as part of the regeneration of the resort’s seafront. These are prominent sites which are being landscaped so that they won’t detract from the appearance of the area until development starts.”
Meanwhile, developers working on a revamp of the Pavilion Theatre have lodged plans for landscaping and lighting with a ”comprehensive masterplan” for the site to follow. A new exhibition centre, a 73-bedroom hotel and two restaurants have also been earmarked for the area.
