Work on a long delayed Rhyl hotel complex is set to begin by the end of next month.
Construction of the new 70-bedroom Premier Inn and a Brewers Fayre restaurant was due to start last summer, with hoardings placed on the site of the former Honey Club last July.
But it’s believed owners Whitbread have faced delays in completing the purchase of the site from Denbighshire County Council, including an legal agreement with Welsh Water for drainage, which was signed last week, and a traffic regulation order.
Vale of Clwyd MP Dr James Davies said he had secured a promise from Whitbread that building work would start by the end of March and take around a year to complete.
But the Conservative MP warned that Rhyl had been the ”victim of false promises and neglect” before. He said: ”I believe it is important to keep communication ongoing and maintain constructive pressure upon landowners, developers and stakeholders to ensure the delivery of projects so that everyone’s ambitions for Rhyl are realised.”
The new complex, including 71 spaces for car parking, is set to create around fifty jobs.
