This week I met with colleagues and the Stadium fir Cornwall partnership. I always supported the concept of a Stadium for Cornwall as I believe it will could enable the Pirates and Truro City to make progress. It could also provide a great facility for community and children’s sport in Cornwall too. I am pleased that the current proposal is a shared Stadium and is supported by Truro & Penwith College who could use the proposed new facilities for a range of educational and training purposes. Cornwall Council has worked with the partners to secure funding and an investable business plan that the majority of Cornwall Councillors have voted for. I am working with Derek Thomas MP in his efforts to secure the £3 million taxpayer funding requested by the Stadium partnership. The plans and business case will go through a rigorous process before taxpayer funding is secured and I am pleased that Sports England will be actively involved in this process.
