£20m allocated for North Wales coastal regeneration

A total of £20 million in funding for the regeneration of the North Wales coastal belt has been announced by the Welsh Assembly Government.

The funding, to be distributed from 2009/10 to 2012/13, will be focused on coastal areas - such as Rhyl and Colwyn Bay - and will be used to improve the quality of housing, revamp local health services, and help the economically inactive into sustained employment.

Leighton Andrews, deputy minister for regeneration, said that the funding would aim to stimulate additional investment in the towns.

The funding is in addition to a £38 million initiative - announced in May - to fund 14 regeneration schemes in North Wales Coastal Strategic Regeneration Areas.
