A Greener West Rhyl

27th April 2015

After several months of transformation works, the West Rhyl Green Space Project is now complete, bringing an attractive and relaxing green space for local people to enjoy.

Landscape architects from Urban Vision – Capita’s partnership with Salford City Council - were appointed by Denbighshire County Council to design and deliver the scheme as part of an overarching housing-led regeneration scheme to create a vibrant community by building new energy efficient homes, creating green space, and providing new shops.

Working closely with Capita’s Colwyn Bay office, which project managed and supervised the construction phase, Urban Vision designed vibrant, relaxing and multi-functional community gardens that incorporate, informal play areas, hard landscaped event spaces, tree lined avenues with spring bulb planting, recycled plastic seating, and perimeter wall and railings.

A new road layout, on-street parking, soft landscaping with wildflower and shrub planting, and bespoke concrete and timber entrance features have also been included.

Minister Lesley Griffiths, commenting after officially opened the green space.

Daniel Sterry (above, middle), senior landscape architect at Urban Vision said Now complete, the landscape improvements will be a catalyst for the developing community by providing a space to enjoy, relax and come together to form a strong sense of place and ownership. It’s been a fantastic project to be involved with and it’s great to see people using the space already.”
