Plan to build a second town centre
A SECOND town centre could be created on the eastern side of St Austell, the Cornish Guardian can reveal.
Walker Developments wants to turn a five-acre brownfield site close to Tesco in Holmbush into a shopping area with national retailers as well as providing a health centre, dentist, community hall and play school.

On Tuesday night Eco-Bos, the company spearheading the eco-town proposals, admitted it was putting the scheme on hold.

Cornwall Council said it was concerned at the news and would be meeting the company soon.
