Further funding for Deeside regeneration
Welsh Government has awarded Flintshire County Council a further £370,000 for
two regeneration projects in Deeside.
The money, from the Vibrant and Viable Places programme, will be used on Phase
2 of Pen Y Llan Court in Connah’s Quay and also to build on the Public Realm
schemes which the area has benefitted from over the last three years.
Phase 2 of the Pen y Lan Court scheme will benefit from £100,000 and scheduled
improvements will include improving security, facilities and general appearance.
A further £270,000 is to be invested in Public Realm schemes to improve
transport and Active Travel facilities to encourage more sustainable travel
options and improve the environment.
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development and
Tourism, Councillor Derek Butler, said:
“Both of these announcements are very welcome and only possible because of the
great work the Council has already done in delivering the Vibrant and Viable
Places programme in Deeside. Deeside is a major economic hub for North Wales
and North West England and this programme is an important element in growing
the prosperity of the region.
