Work has started on transforming Rhyl’s Sky Tower into a illuminated beacon.
Denbigshire County Council say preparation has started on turning the 240ft tower into a monument as part of the town’s multi-million pound regeneration scheme.
The work will involve painting the structure, installing lighting and placing hoardings around the base.
Council leader Hugh Evans said: ”The Sky Tower is such a unique structure and can be seen for miles along the North Wales Coast. We want to transform it into a unique landmark that will light up the area and form an important feature of the hospitality zone along the waterfront.”
Meanwhile, work is continuing on refurbishing the Pavilion Theatre on East Parade, including a new foyer and restaurant and a recladding of the main theatre building. Planning permission has already been given for a Travelodge hotel and a family pub and restaurant run by Marston’s.
And a drop-in public session will be held next week on plans for the new Waterpark. The proposals will be on show at Vue Cinemas on Wednesday 22nd March from 11am to 7pm before they are submitted to the council for planning permission next month.
