A kitesurfing school has put forward plans to create an ”Olympic kitesurfing village” for Rhyl.
Pro Kitesurfing wants to expand its facilities by turning the former toilet block and cafe on East Parade into a new tutorial room and changing rooms to accommodate school trips and larger groups.
The proposals also include building rock wall space and a freestyle area with two dividing walls, as well as transforming the old land train building into a shop, cafe, wine bar and storage.
In the applicaition, Pro Kitesurfing director Simon Jones said the proposals would bring lifestyle sports into the heart of Rhyl: ”This incredible new flagship facility will deliver some of the UK’s best athletes, a must visit for all tourists and a place that locals will be proud of. This new village for outdoor activities will be recognised internationally, by utilising the best facilities available and providing new jobs, incredible customer satisfaction and deliver a service without compromise.”
The school, which already has its own clubhouse facilities on East Parade, has been running since 2014. It’s understood Liverpool-based Neptune Developments are backing the application as part of the ongoing waterfront regeneration scheme.
