Residents have a month to consider the plans.

This is not about a developer selling something to people
Martin Davidson, development consultant
Of three options for residents to consider, they have the opportunity to opt for no changes to the town.

The second plan suggests only minimal intervention along the harbourside.

And the third plan is to redevelop the whole of the harbourside area.

The major development option includes plans for 24 flats, an underground car park, a new promenade and marina and a range of cafes and shops.

Public meeting

The project's development consultant, Martin Davidson, said the final decision will lie with the people of Falmouth.

"This is not about a developer selling something to people," said Mr Davidson.

"If the people of Falmouth say they want to have nothing then that's what they can have.

"If they want the big development that's what they can have."

A public meeting to give people the chance to voice their opinions is being held at the Maritime Museum on 29 September.
