Meeting Over £110m Shopping Centre Plan
7:00am 30th October 2013
A meeting is being held over plans for a controversial out of town shopping centre for St Austell.
Coyte Farm would mean a Marks and Spencer, supermarket, petrol station and restaurant amongst other facilities.
But some locals fear the £110m development would kill off the town centre.
The application for a mixed use development on the site including a retail store and shopping park, also features works to St Mewan Churchyard, improvements to St Mewan Community Primary School and the provision of a Golf Academy.
The public meeting will be held at St Austell One Stop Shop on Penwinnick Road, at 6pm on Wednesday 30 October. The council said all are welcome and on arrival will be able to register their wish to speak.
"I'm aware that there are a lot of people who want to have their say and we on the strategic planning committee want to listen to them," said Councillor Rob Nolan, Chairman of the Council's Strategic Planning committee.
The public meeting is an opportunity for councillors to hear from local people on all sides of the debate and no decision will be taken on the day.
The planning application will be considered by the Strategic Planning Committee at a meeting scheduled to take place later this year.
