Work on the £23m Marina Quay project at the former Rhyl funfair site will re-start next week after a pause to deal with highways issues.
The famous fairground was razed to the ground back in 2007 with rides like the Jetstream roller coaster and water chute consigned to history.
It was done to make way for the £85m Ocean Plaza development but the recession saw that plan scuppered with developer Modus going into administration.
Scarborough Group International took on the project and workers "broke ground" at the site in January and started clearance work to make way for the development.
But the site has since been quiet as talks took place with the local authority to deal with road issues under a Section 278 agreement, a legal contract between the local authority and developer to carry out works to public highways.
Now though work is set to step up with staff heading back on site and the project moving ahead again from Monday.
Units were today moved onto the site to house the construction teams that will be working on the scheme.
They plan to take forward the £23m scheme for retail units, a hotel and restaurants with The Range, Poundworld and Farmfoods signed up so far.
Having secured pre-lets on 49,000 sq ft of retail space, Scarborough has appointed Barnfield Construction to take the site forward.
They say they are also close to another two deals on the site.
