Plans for a Stadium for Cornwall in Truro are a step closer.

It is after a legal challenge against a development at Langarth near Threemilestone was thrown out.

It will mean fifteen hundred homes, hotel and new primary school.

But it also includes infrastructure for the ten thousand seater building.

A spokesperson for the Stadium for Cornwall Group said: "The Stadium for Cornwall Group is pleased to hear that the High Court has rejected an application made by Truro City Council for a judicial review of Cornwall Council's decision to grant permission for the housing development scheme at Langarth Farm, Threemilestone, Truro.

"This development,  which received outline consent earlier this year, is for 1,500 new homes, a primary school, care village, community centre, hotel and a 600-space extension to the Threemilestone Park and Ride facility, and will in addition, allow the provision of  some of the shared infrastructure works for the Stadium for Cornwall, itself obtaining full planning permission in April this year.

"Importantly for the Stadium for Cornwall Group, this decision now enables serious funding discussions to take place for the long-awaited Stadium project, making its construction a reality instead of a possibility.

"The Stadium for Cornwall Group is confident of obtaining successful financial backing, allowing a projected physical commencement date on site of early 2015."

Rob Saltmarsh from developer Inox said: "Inox is naturally delighted that the Judge has dismissed the application for judicial review of the Langarth planning permission and also the application by Truro City Council for cost protection. Although we are entitled to pursue the council for our own legal costs, we have decided not to do so.

"Inox appreciates that Truro City Council was exercising its democratic right in bringing this case, but we felt from the outset that there were no justifiable grounds for the claim. We understand that the City Council could still ask for the case to be heard in open court, but sincerely hope that this ruling is an end to the matter.

"Our anticipated start date on site has obviously been put back by these delays, but we are now looking to commence construction during 2015 and we look forward to working up the reserved matters planning applications.

"Although a separate project, Inox remains fully committed to securing funding for the Stadium for Cornwall and we will do all we can to make this project a reality. The stadium remains a hugely exciting opportunity for the whole of Cornwall."
