Council ‘yes’ to stadium


The Stadium for Cornwall moved a step closer to reality today when Cornwall Council’s planning committee gave its outline consent.

Council members voted 14-4 in favour of the 10,000 seater stadium, which would see both the Cornish Pirates and Truro City FC teams playing there, as well as other events being staged.

It is far from a done deal, however, with the final decision lying with Eric Pickles, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

There is also the small question of who will pay for the £24M stadium, with the Council already having said that no public money would be available for construction costs.
