Decision delayed on Stadium For Cornwall

March 13th, 2015

The wait to find out if Cornwall is to get a new stadium goes on after a lengthy planning meeting to consider plans last night ended without a decision being made.

Cornwall Council’s planning committee met yesterday to consider the plans for a new superstore, which would have seen the developers build a new county sports stadium as part of the application.

The issue is complicated by the fact three other developers also want to build stores and homes on land at Langarth, to the west of Truro.

Only one application, by developers Inox, includes plans for a new 6,000-seat venue and new home for the Cornish Pirates rugby club.

But councillors couldn’t reach a decision as to whether that application could go ahead, which means Cornish rugby fans must wait three months to see councillors debate the plan’s merits again.

That means by the time you head down south for a stay at last minute cottages Cornwall we may know whether the plans will go ahead or not!
