Officials could scale back their role over plans for a Stadium for Cornwall.

Cornwall Council is meeting to discuss funding for a ten thousand seater at Threemilestone on Wednesday.

It has never agreed to pump in cash but now it is understood three other organisations will lead the project.

Officials say it has the capacity to generate 109 full time jobs and generate £2.6m for the local economy every year.

In a statement the council said, "Following an initial feasability study into the project, the Council agreed to allocate up to £120,000 to explore the viability of the preferred location in the Threemilestone area of Truro, with a range of stakeholder, including Truro and Penwith College, Inox Group, Truro City Football Club and the Cornish Pirates Rugby Football Club.

"This work has been undertaken on behalf of the Council and a majority of the stakeholders over the past few months and the outcome of this will now be reported to members of the Scrutiny Committee."

Campaigner Rod Lyon is on the working group. He said, "I think the reason the council hasn't put the money is that there are people in Cornwall who have categorically stated, 'I will not see my rates spent on a stadium.' This is a chance of a lifetime to gain such a facility. I would have thought all the people in Cornwall would have been 100% for it."

A final announcement is due next month.
