Speaking after today’s Cornwall Council meeting, which saw Councillors vote to support the recommendation for £3m of financial support from the Council’s Economic Match Fund, a Stadium for Cornwall spokesperson said:
The stadium partners are delighted that Cornwall’s Councillors have given their support – voting 69 for to 41 against – for our vision to create a hub for Cornish sport, health and wellbeing, education, and business.
We had thought it might be a close vote, but having such a large majority in favour is a huge positive signal. The vote indicates this is something Cornwall wants and now the partners will move forward to deliver the project subject to the envisaged central government funding being forthcoming.
We would like to thank councillors for the faith they have shown in the partnership and to take this opportunity to thank all of those from across Cornwall who have come together and supported the Stadium for Cornwall project.
The partners would like to acknowledge the support of Cornwall Council officers, particularly Nigel Blackler, for their work in assisting the partnership in getting this positive vote at the Full Council today.
In many ways, the hard work in delivering the stadium starts now and we cannot wait to deliver a stadium that Cornwall can be proud of.
