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. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
