Nearly a hundred new homes, a food park and another park and ride in Truro will go ahead.

Officials had already approved controversial plans for the £40 million development off the A39 at Newquay Road.

Now the Secretary of State has given his backing, deciding not to call the decision in.

It will also include a household waste recycling centre and Waitrose supermarket.

Work is due to start early next year, and bosses insist it will create two hundred new jobs.

Graeme Hicks, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for Transportation and Highways, said:

"I am pleased to see that the Secretary of State has supported our plan for an Eastern Park & Ride. The scheme is a cornerstone of the Truro Transport Strategy and its delivery will see journey time savings to all road users.  Linking to the successful Langarth Park & Ride it will create a true cross-city service, with a new stop introduced at Quay Street for access to Lemon Quay.

Waitrose Director of Development, Nigel Keen, said:

"We are delighted to be coming to Truro and look forward to playing our part in promoting the city as an attractive retail destination. Supporting farmers and growers is core to our philosophy and we believe the Cornish Food Centre concept will help local producers flourish."
