A sixty thousand pound plan has been revealed to get people back to Cornwall's high streets.

It will be shared between Wadebridge, Launceston, Helston, Newquay, St Austell and Camelford.

It is because they lost out on a one hundred thousand pound grant to Liskeard.

Guy Thomas, Cornwall Council’s Town Centre Management Specialist, said “The high number of towns across the country which originally applied for Portas Pilot funding demonstrates the scale of threats facing our town centres.

“We are delighted that a number of towns in Cornwall have secured further financial assistance through the Town Team Partner scheme to help deliver projects aimed at supporting the high street.  We already have £100,000 awarded to Liskeard earlier this year and this next round of funding will help a number of other projects to be delivered.”
