Shopping Centre Could Attract 'Likes Of John Lewis'

Truro City shopping Park

We are getting our first glimpse of plans to bring the likes of John Lewis to Cornwall.

They are among the big names that could move into Treyew Road if the football club is turned into a shopping mall.

The deal would see the side get a new ground.

Philip King, a representative from Helical Retail, said: "We look forward to discussing our plans in more detail.  The scheme will feature a number of large units, non-food retailers - we've already had interest from furniture, electrical, home store kitchen and fashion retailers who are keenly looking for space in the area.  This is a great opportunity to bring further trade and related jobs to Truro."

Peter Masters, Chairman and co-owner of TCFC, alongside Philip Perryman, said: "This is a critical moment for the Club but with the promise of a fantastic future.   We are actively looking at relocation sites for the new ground, including Langarth Farm and Nansavallan, both of which remain subject to planning consent.  

"We are keen to develop much needed footballing facilities, including both Ladies and Youth football.  We urge local people to come and take a look and, of course, extend a special invitation to all our fans, for whom we have organised a private viewing on Friday afternoon."

The public exhibition is being held at the Treyew Road ground from 6pm - 8pm on Friday 11th and 10am - 4pm on Saturday 12th July, coinciding with the Club's Fans Day.  Developer, Helical Retail and representatives from the Club will be on hand to explain the proposals and answer any questions.
