Plans are revealed for a new retail park on the edge of Truro.

Helical wants to build at Truro City's ground at Treyew Road.

Pirate FM understands the football club could move after striking a deal.

Three sites are on the cards, including one earmarked for a Stadium for Cornwall.

Truro City and Helical have released a joint statement:

Truro City Football Club (TCFC) has taken a further step in its quest to bring Conference Premier level football to Cornwall following a joint agreement with developers Helical Retail Ltd on its relocation.
 
Helical entered into a development agreement with JIL, the owners of the TCFC site, in November 2012 and have been working up their proposals since that time. Helical and TCFC have announced that the current football ground at Treyew Road will be redeveloped as a retail park to be called Truro City Shopping Park. Proceeds from the development will pay for the relocation of the Club.
 
Peter Masters, Chairman and co-owner of TCFC, alongside Pep Perryman said: "After protracted and sometimes tough negotiations with the developers we are delighted that we have been able to reach agreement that will ensure the TCFC will be able to facilitate football at Conference Premier Level, albeit on an alternative site subject to our existing home at Treyew Road being granted the necessary planning permissions.

It has long been thought that the club should relocate to the Stadium Site at Langarth Farm, which is still a very real possibility but we are also in advanced discussions with the Tregothnan Estate, for an alternative site at Nansavallan, enabling the club to develop much needed footballing facilities commiserate with Conference Premier Football, Ladies and a much needed Youth academy which is vital to the long term sustainability of Truro City Football Club and Cornish football as a whole".
 
The proposed shopping park will comprise a number of large, non-food retail units, bringing new retailers to Truro that currently cannot find suitable sites in the City Centre.
 
Philip King, a representative from Helical, said: "We have been encouraged by the significant demand from furniture, kitchen, electrical, home store and fashion retailers who would like to trade in Truro but there is no suitable available accommodation. These retailers would be considering schemes in St Austell and Hayle if it wasn't for these proposals. Details of the scheme will be released when the consultation process commences shortly but we can assure residents it will be designed to complement the surrounding area, it will be of a very high quality and constructed to meet exacting sustainability standards. This is a very exciting plan."
