A landmark leisure pool complex will not re-open as a "wet attraction," Denbighshire councillors have decided.

Instead, councillors voted to explore possibilities of re-opening Rhyl Sun Centre for dry activities.

The centre closed along with Prestatyn's Nova Centre and the North Wales Bowls Centre when the trust running them ran out of cash.

Councillors also voted not to re-open the Nova Centre, but to open the bowls centre as soon as possible.

Clwyd Leisure was set up by Denbighshire council in 2001 to run the three sites on its behalf.

However, the council's cabinet decided to withdraw financial support of £200,000 for 2014/15 and Clwyd Leisure ceased trading in February.

At a meeting on Tuesday, councillors agreed not to-re-open the Nova Centre due to running costs.

The meeting also heard that interested party, businessman Mo Chaudry, who runs a pool complex in Staffordshire, is interested in seeing the Rhyl Sun Centre facilities.
