PLANS have been drawn up to turn a former bank in St Austell town centre into 11 apartments.

Bourn Homes has submitted a planning application to Cornwall Council to convert the old Barclays Bank building in Church Street.

No external alterations are proposed and it is not considered that the change of use would have an impact on the conservation area or grade I listed church on the opposite side of the road.

The flats would have bin stores and bike storage.

Anyone is also allowed to submit comments about the application.
