Following successful applications to the Heritage Lottery Fund, a Townscape Heritage (TH) scheme started in St Austell in July 2018 and will finish in June 2022.

The Scheme has a budget of around £1.3 million and is funding high quality traditional repairs, shopfront, and signage reinstatement and architectural detailing in the Conservation Area. It is rejuvenating and bringing back to use key historic buildings to complement public areas.

The TH scheme will upskill local contractors in traditional and new sustainable building techniques through pioneering skills training initiatives. Exciting website updates and a heritage project involving local schools will raise awareness of the area's historic significance.

The scheme is being delivered by a local partnership including Cornwall Council, the Town Council, BID and local business and community interests; working alongside experienced local authority staff.

Local community and volunteer groups are engaged through consultation and training to undertake survey and legacy-monitoring.

By regenerating St Austell Town Centre the TH scheme will help implement adopted planning, regeneration and retail policies for the area, as well as the updated Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan.
