Nearly 18 months since being given the go ahead, work has finally started on a new hotel and restaurant on Rhyl’s promenade.
The Premier Inn complex was due to begin construction last year at the site of the former Honey Club, but the £5.5 million project has faced long delays because of planning issues between developers Chesham Estates and Denbighshire County Council.
Up to 70 jobs are set to be created at the new complex, which includes a Brewers Fayre restaurant and a retail unit. When planning permission was granted in September 2014, developers said they hoped to open this year following 12 months of building work.
The Honey Club was demolished along with other surrounding buildings, including the Mint Arcade, in July 2013.
