Denbighshire County Council has taken the difficult decision to close Rhyl Harbour from 3pm this afternoon, until further notice.

This means all facilities will be closed and the harbour is in formal lockdown. Pont y Ddraig will remain in the lowered position with no access to the inner Harbour. Rhyl Harbour boatyard will be locked and all services suspended.

Both the inner and outer pontoons will have fob access for emergency purposes only.

These are very difficult times and this is uncharted territory for everyone. Given the evermore pressing requirement to observe social distancing and the need to prevent non-essential travel and social contact, the Council feels this is the only responsible course of action.

The Council wishes to thank people in advance for their co-operation and understanding and will continue to engage with advice from Government and Public Health bodies to introduce any additional measures that are recommended or required.
