Last chance for you to vote on Coyte Farm proposals
TODAY is the last chance to cast your vote on a proposed out of town shopping centre near St Austell.
The £110 million development planned for Coyte Farm has polarised the St Austell community.
Developers say their plans will provide 1,000 jobs and revitalise the town. The plans include a 68,000 sq ft supermarket, 160,000sq ft shopping park with large units for up to ten national retailers, a care home, 12-acre youth academy extension to St Austell Golf Club, a pub and land for improvements to St Mewan's school and church.
However, campaigners fear that it could destroy town centre trade, with independent research by industry consultants Deloitte showing turnover for businesses in St Austell could drop by 23 per cent.

Coyte Farm's shopping area would be bigger than that of all St Austell's shops put together and it would become the third largest retail centre in Cornwall.
It could take trade away from not only St Austell, but Bodmin, Newquay, Wadebridge, Truro and Liskeard, the report shows.
But what do you think?
