The town centre plans include apartments, shops and restaurants

People with disabilities have been invited to meet council staff and builders to discuss the development of a Cornish town centre.

The aim of the meeting in St Austell next month is to look at issues of access as the new 75m regeneration scheme takes shape.

Contractor Sir Robert McAlpine and Restormel District Council will give an update on the work and disabled access.

The Council Chamber meeting will take place on Monday 2 February at 1800 GMT.

More than 50% of the retail space has been let out and, in December, a 3.5m cinema complex was the first part of regeneration project to be completed.

The new development will be a mix of residential apartments, shops, cafes and restaurants, a multi-storey car park and public open spaces.
