Denbighshire councillors have given the go-ahead to a new shopping centre in Prestatyn.

The decision to approve the development off the high street and Nant Hall Road follows years of delays for the project.

It will include a new Tesco supermarket and other shops, together with car parking and a filling station.

Part of the site includes land previously occupied by Kwik Save. Work is expected to start next spring.

Tesco submitted its original proposals a decade ago, but they were shelved when a developer took over an adjacent site.

Since then the two parties have been working together on a joint proposal, but the economic downturn put the scheme on hold until now.
