The restaurant, located at the town’s Pavilion Theatre, will open on December 1, offering high-quality food and drink in a stylish environment and will be open to theatre-goers, residents and visitors.

It will form part of the wider regeneration of Rhyl’s waterfront which also includes the construction of a new waterpark next to the town’s Sky Tower.

As well as the work at the restaurant, the Pavilion’s bar areas have been refurbished, a new façade has been added on the main building and a new entrance foyer has been created.

“The redevelopment of the Pavilion Theatre is part of the wider work in Rhyl which will increase footfall in the town and create jobs that will boost the local economy.

“1891 will form a significant part of the waterfront redevelopment. Work is already underway at the waterpark and work is nearing completion at the Premier Inn hotel at the former Honey Club site, while the illuminated Sky Tower offers a great skyline feature for the town.

“It’s great to see these key developments taking shape –for what will be an exciting, major regeneration of the waterfront area and we hope this will be the catalyst for further investment in Rhyl in the future.”

Over the coming weeks the furniture and kitchen equipment will be installed at 1891 while all staff will be in place by November 20.

Welsh Government approach Conwy Council for a series of ‘major events’

Share this story:

The Welsh Government’s major events unit has approached Conwy County Council to see if it could work to secure high-profile events for north Wales.

Major events which could include an international music concert and international cycling event  can incur expensive hosting fees, so help from local authorities could support the events financially.

Conwy Council which already hosts an annual music has suggested the following hosting fees would apply for the events the WGMEU has proposed:

  • International cycling event, 2019: £50,000
  • International music concert, date to be confirmed: £100,000
  • European cycling event, 2020: £45,000
  • Men’s world sporting event, 2021: £100,000

The report does also acknowledge there could be concerns around “stretching resources”.

WGMEU has requested that the events remain unnamed but said they fit with Conwy’s outdoor offer and key venues.

Rhyl councillors visit Rhyl Police Station

Share this story:

A special meeting gave councillors an insight into the work being undertaken by North Wales Police.

When members of Rhyl Town Council visited Rhyl Police Station, they were not only given  a guided tour of the building, which included the former cells, interview rooms and the parade room, but they were also given eye-opening  presentations about the award winning  Ty Golau Project and the effects ‘County Lines’ are having on the area.

Representatives from Ty Golau together with the police officers involved in the project, which won first prize in the Problem Oriented Partnership, explained to the councillors how, since its establishment in 2015, the project has addressed the issues caused by problematic individuals in the town, getting them to turn their lives around and change their offending behaviour.

Lynda Williams a representative from Ty Golau explained: “The issues have been reduced and become more manageable through strong partnership working between North Wales Police, Ty Golau and Denbighshire County Council.”

District Inspector Alwyn Williams added: “There is plenty going on. We are heading in the right direction with various operations under Operation Deaconing, and we hope public perception of the town is changing for the better.”

The reality of the national issue of ‘County Lines,’ which involves Organised Crime Gangs forcing vulnerable people to travel across borders to commit crime on their behalf, and how it is impacting on North Wales was highlighted in a presentation by Detective Inspector Jon Russell and Brian Nicklin, who emphasised the murder of Mark Mason in Rhyl last October was a specific a County Lines case.

Reassuring those present and in a bid to encourage them to work alongside the police, District Chief Inspector Mark Williams said: “We want you to be our voice we don’t to scare you, but to show the reality. It is not a quick fix, we are working at it – dealing with the wider picture.”

“It is no worse in Rhyl than anywhere else. The problem is everywhere.”

As the meeting drew to a close, Mayor Alan James said: “This has been a very positive meeting for the council. It has been very enlightening – giving us a total overview of the difficulties the police in Rhyl are facing and the hard work they are all putting in.”

Greenfield Place, Rhyl parking charges update

Share this story:

Denbighshire County Council has clarified its position in relation to issues with parking at the Greenfield Place car park in Rhyl.

In October, agents acting on behalf of the site owners applied to remove a planning agreement already in place whereby the car park was available free of charge to the public, irrespective of whether they shop at the store. This was to allow them to formally charge people for parking at the location.

This application was rejected by Denbighshire’s Planning Committee, but the company continued to charge for parking.

The Council recently wrote to the Danish company running the car park, stressing the negative publicity coming from their continued charging at the site.  It also called for the company to stop charging until such time they submitted a revised planning application and a decision was taken by the Planning Committee. The Council also outlined in the letter that the company was in breach of the planning agreement in place.

This week the parking meters have been covered up at the location.

Councillor Brian Jones, Cabinet Lead Member for Environment, said: “We are delighted that the company have taken steps in the short term to comply with the planning condition, in light of the strength of feeling locally and following the Council’s correspondence.

“If a revised planning application is sent in, the Council will be consulting with the local community and providing a chance for local people to get involved in having their say. All feedback received would then be reported back to the Planning Committee, as part of the decision making process”.
