Work has started on significant improvements to the open spaces, play areas and the social aspects of Bruton Park, Rhyl. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The funding comes from Housing Revenue Accounts subsidy (HRA) which is being invested in the area by Denbighshire County Council’s Housing Services. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Jamie Groves, Head of Finance, Assets and Housing said, ‘Housing Services are committed not only to improving the housing stock but also improving the public realm and we will be working closely with Countryside Services to carry out replanting work and tidying up the area.’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Lead Member for Modernisation and Housing, Councillor Barbara Smith spoke of the importance of investing to improve lives for local families who live on the estate. Councillor Smith stated, ‘We are really pleased that improvement work has now started on Bruton Park, Rhyl. We believe this investment was really important. Improving play areas and open spaces is essential to helping enhance the well-being of the residents and families who live here. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

‘We are very proud that our housing department are taking the lead on this ambitious project and we are sure the results of all the hard work will look fantastic when the work is finished.’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Councillors Janette Chamberlain-Jones and Cheryl Williams, Local Members said, ‘We are delighted to see improvements to Bruton Park. Together with planting at the entrance, landscaping of the pond area, and work on the planned play area to begin soon, Bruton Park residents are really appreciative of the improvements being made. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

‘Improvements to the housing stock itself have already taken place and the estate will now benefit from seeing this area enhanced with more planting, giving a greater sense of pride in the area they live.’ ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
