Four hundred and ninety new jobs are to be created and 325 jobs safeguarded in Denbighshire as a result of the latest£1.7m objective 1 cash injection into the county, Michael German, the assembly's minister for economic development announced today.
The new jobs will be created within small businesses in the area, with the money being used to encourage and help new companies to set up and existing ones to grow and expand.
Three projects, which have been put forward by Denbighshire CC, will share the£1.7m of European funds. The national assembly is also contributing£1.1m from its local regeneration fund, which will be used to match-fund one of the projects.
Assembly economic development minister, Michael German, said: 'This£1.7m of Objective 1 money will be a real shot in the arm for the Denbighshire economy and is designed to help local home-grown businesses in the county to become more competitive and successful and promote the start-up of brand new businesses.
'The assembly government is delivering on objective 1 and I look forward to seeing these projects deliver jobs for the people of Denbighshire.'
The objective 1 money will go towards the following three projects in Denbighshire:
£785,000 towards phase 2 of the strategic industrial site development - a scheme to build 12,500 sq ft of workshops on two brownfield sites at Prestatyn and Corwen, creating 60 new jobs.
