Plans to redevelop Rhyl - and demolish the town's
funfair - are due to be submitted to Denbighshire
Proposals for a new £85m scheme called Ocean Plaza
include apartments, offices and a hotel, but not the
historic tourist attraction.
Developers Modus Properties are due to submit the
plans this week.
Funfair owner Harold Robinson said: "This has been a
very difficult decision to make, but I am afraid
this is the way the business has gone".
added: "Over the last few years, foreign holidays,
weekend sport and 101 other things have led to this.
think the West End of Rhyl and the town in general
will benefit enormously from this. We just can't
carry on as we are - the whole town needs this."
spokesman for Denbighshire County Council said no
plans had yet been submitted.
