Hope For A Stadium For Cornwall
3:45pm 26th September 2014
The dream of a Stadium for Cornwall is still alive.
Plans for a new supermarket in Truro have been deferred.
Campaigners warned that would have killed off the 10,000 seater scheme.
It is because the developers need a store as well, to help pay for it.
Peter Marks from the Stadium for Cornwall working group says hearing all the plans at once is the right decision.
He said: "Absolutely wonderful news, without this result I think the stadium could have been killed off.
"There is only room for one supermarket to be honest, and whoever got it would have killed Inox's hopes off, because Inox can go in with an application it means that can fund the stadium.
"Now we just go back and hope that Inox can produce a good case for winning the supermarket battle, because the battle is still on, it just means that Inox are now allowed to be involved."
Rob Saltmarsh is from the developers, Inox, he said: "Morrisons are saying that if Asda get consent they will no longer be interested in coming to Truro, and they are the only two supermarkets left, so if one gets consent that leaves no room for anything else and leaves no room for us.
"Fantastic for youth sport, it also gives Cornwall an opportunity to bring professional team sport to the area, and as importantly it creates a platform for the West Country to start competing with the rest of the UK."3:45pm 26th September 2014
