Stadium For Cornwall Moves Closer

A Stadium for Cornwall has moved a step closer.
It is after plans for fifteen hundred homes, a hotel, care home and a primary school near the site at Threemilestone were given the initial go-ahead.
The ten thousand seater, which has already got planning permission, will share stuff like a link road with Langarth Farm.
Stadium campaigners say now more funding talks can start.
Rod Lyon, General Secretary of the Stadium4Cornwall group, said: "The S4C Group is pleased to learn that further progress has been made towards the provision of the Stadium for Cornwall, through the conclusion of planning matters with Cornwall Council on the separate Langarth Housing Development.
"This big step forward enables work to commence on further reserved matters, these being key inter-linked infrastructure works, which also serve the Stadium land. This positive news means that in addition, Stadium funding talks are now able to be progressed, leading to a projected commencement date for works on site during 2014."
The £400 million Langarth Farm development is tipped to create around 1,000 jobs.
Rob Saltmarsh, managing director of Exeter-based Inox Group, said: "Inox are pleased that matters have been concluded with Cornwall Council. This decision allows Inox to begin work on the further reserved matters planning applications which will facilitate the commencement of development.
"The Langarth project is a very significant private sector investment into Cornwall and will be a welcome boost in terms of job creation and much needed housing in Truro.
"Cornwall Council have demonstrated their ability to take their responsibilities to ensure a steady supply of new homes across the county seriously by granting outline planning permission for this major mixed use development.
"I also hope that speedy delivery of the project and the new infrastructure that it provides will catalyse the delivery of the Stadium for Cornwall project that has already received full planning permission on an adjacent site"
