Plans are revealed to bank roll a ten thousand seater stadium for Cornwall.

Developers want to build a new supermarket and housing amongst other things at West Langarth in Truro.

But there are already bids in for three separate supermarket developments in the city.

Exeter-based Inox group, which already has detailed planning permission for the stadium and outline permission for a neighbouring mixed use development called Langarth Farm, said its new retail-led West Langarth scheme was the key to unlocking the stadium plan.

The proposals include a new supermarket and other shops, petrol station, food and drink outlets, community and sports buildings, formal playing pitch provision, public open space, housing and parking.

Inox says it will use money to build a stadium and has already signed a joint venture agreement with property development company Henry Boot Developments Plc to deliver West Langarth if the plans are approved.

Inox is now calling on Cornwall Council to consider its proposals at the same time as rival retail planning applications to the west of the city, arguing that its scheme would generate the maximum community benefit and cannot be ignored now an application is in.

Rob Saltmarsh, Managing Director of Inox, said: “West Langarth is the key to unlocking a private sector funding solution for the Stadium for Cornwall and it is the supermarket element that makes it stack up financially. But we know there is demand for only one more supermarket to the west of Truro and there are already three other schemes on the table.

"We are now asking that councillors have the opportunity to consider everything in the round so that our scheme can be judged alongside the others, and their respective benefits assessed.

"We believe West Langarth would deliver the biggest community benefit because it would finally allow the dream of a Stadium for Cornwall to be realised. It would also provide a local retail centre for residents of Langarth Farm and complement our existing plans for that area.”

West Langarth is proposed on almost 17 hectares of land adjoining Inox’s £400m Langarth Farm development. This already has outline planning permission for 1,500 new homes (including 525 affordable units), primary school, care village, community centre, hotel and a 600-space extension to the Threemilestone park and ride.

The Stadium for Cornwall is planned for a site next to the park and ride on the eastern side of Langarth Farm and already has detailed planning permission. This site was identified as the preferred location for a stadium following an independent assessment by consultants employed by Cornwall Council which was published almost four years ago.

A spokesperson for support group, Stadium 4 Cornwall, said: "Stadium for Cornwall Group are delighted with the news that the Inox Group and Henry Boot Developments stadium enabling planning application has now been submitted to Cornwall Council.

"The Stadium for Cornwall Group (S4C) would urge members of the Council to hear this application alongside other supermarket applications currently being considered by the Council in the Truro area. This private sector funded community stadium opportunity must not be missed."
