St. Asaph does not have city status however it likes to refer to itself as City of St. Asaph and this is the even the name of the local town council.

The reference in the history records has led to a lot of companies using it as part of their name.
Over the last couple of decades the economy within the town has thrived and the opening of the A55 road, which actually takes the traffic away from the town heading both east and west, first helped this. The most recent growth for the town has came about due to the new business park that has been built on the outskirts of the town and this business park has attracted investments from overseas and at home.
