No supermarket – no stadium?


According to various news reports – planners are recommending refusal of the the supermarket linked to the stadium project.

PLANS to build a Stadium for Cornwall have receive a major setback after planning officers recommended that plans for a supermarket which would fund the sports ground should be thrown out.

Cornwall Council’s strategic planning committee will meet next Thursday to discuss four separate applications to build a new supermarket to the west of Truro.

One of the applications is from developers Inox and has been put forward as the means to fund a Stadium for Cornwall which would be built on land at Langarth and provide a home for the Cornish Pirates.

Stadium supporters have said that without the funding from the supermarket development it is unlikely that the stadium will be built.

So no stadium?
Will supporters of the project stump up their own funds?
Will supporters expect it to be publicly funded?
Will permission for the 1,500 houses (which were originally supposed to support the housing) be revoked?

We shall see!
