Stadium For Cornwall Decision
4:00pm 17th November 2011
A Stadium for Cornwall moves a step closer.
It is as officials give outline planning for a 10,000 seater at Threemilestone.
The Secretary of State has still got to approve it.
It is claimed it would create 400 jobs and bring £3 million a year into the Duchy.
Local business owners say it'll be a huge boost.
Michael Owen runs the Britannia Hotel at nearby Chacewater: "We are on the route that would bring traffic up from Redruth. There's great potential for us. Not only from the drinks trade and food trade it would bring to us, but also the accommodation.
Michael reckons it'll benefit Cornwall's whole economy, "If you look at the location, it's central to Cornwall. If you put a compass on a map, you can reach the Eden Project and Lands End within one day, so people coming down to Cornwall, making the effort to come and see a rugby game, you can almost guarantee that fifty per cent of those people would make a weekend of it, maybe even take a holiday of it whilst they're coming down for a big event."
