Bodmin town centre could be made to go back to its historical roots.

Plans have been revealed to make shops look more traditional.

It would mean all modern shopfronts would have to replace signs, windows and satellite dishes.

Planners have said the shops should reflect the town's culture.

It would include pavements being put back into Honey Street and the highstreet's hanging baskets being replaced by trees.

Local traders are worried about how much it cost them, and their businesses.

Laura Galvin runs The Sports Shop on Mount Folly, she said: "I think Bodmin does value its historical features very much, and actually tries very hard to celebrate those without the need for suddenly imposing new shopfrontages on everybody."

She added: "We would lose business, clearly in the short term. We support each other in if they come into one shop we signpost them to other shops, but actually if three or four of those are shut because they are having work done on them, then it could knock trade in for quite some time."
