Rhyl Town Centre Regeneration

Posted 21.04.2009

IOTA’s natural stone planters feature in the latest phase of the regeneration plan for the Welsh seaside town of Rhyl.

Granite was chosen for its strength and solidity, making it an ideal choice for high-traffic public spaces. A total of 110 stone planters were supplied, divided across three schemes – for the Railway Station, the High Street, and local schools.

The container-based landscaping scheme for the Railway Station was developed by IOTA, based on an original concept by the Welsh College of Horticulture, and in close consultation with the Regeneration Office of Denbighshire County Council and the Rhyl Business Group. Arrangements of cube planters of varying heights add structure and interest, whilst also creating flowing ‘wave’ shapes which mirror the new Drift Park Monument on the Promenade. The planters used are IOTA’s stock Cube 600, along with bespoke planters of heights 800 and 1000mm.

The High Street scheme utilizes three of IOTA’s largest stock planter designs in Granite – the Taper 600, Taper 800 and Trough 1000. In the final scheme, IOTA’s Trough 1000 planters were chosen for an educational initiative promoted by the Rhyl LEQ Partnership.
