Charlestown is designated a Word Heritage Site and Conservation Area

A plan for the future of a Cornish town designated a World Heritage Site will go on display later.

The Charlestown Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan aims to define the character and appearance of the town.

It will also be used to inform future development decisions and policies.

Residents have been invited to provide their opinion on the plans on Wednesday at St Paul's Church Hall between 13:00 and 17:00 BST.

Cornwall Councillor John Oxenham said: "It's important that during the consultation period the local community takes the opportunity to have its say about what they feel makes Charlestown special and how they want to see the conservation area safeguarded in the future."

Copies of the draft plan will also be available from St Austell Library and Cornwall Council.
