Post Budget Statement by the Stadium for Cornwall Partners
The Stadium for Cornwall partners were made aware ahead of Chancellor Philip Hammond’s budget on Monday, October 29 that the Stadium for Cornwall funding request was unlikely to be referenced directly.
Continued dialogue on the economic, social and health benefits of the Stadium for Cornwall has been ongoing with local and national stakeholders, in particular, colleagues at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and Sport England.
These positive discussions mean that partners remain optimistic that a national funding agreement will be in place later this year, or very early in 2019, to match the £3 million of public investment already agreed by Cornwall Council.
Work on the development of the Stadium for Cornwall continues apace with several key local appointments recently made to develop the design detail before tenders are issued for construction. These include Truro-based Cornwall Archaeological Unit, Ward Williams Associates (WWA), cost consultants based in Threemilestone, SDS – Mechanical & Electrical Engineers, based in Plymouth and WSP/Cornwall Environmental Consultants (CEC) based in Truro/ Allet.
Martin Tucker, Chairperson of the Stadium for Cornwall CIC and Principal of Truro and Penwith College releases press statement on the current stadium position.
The Chair of the Stadium for Cornwall Board of Directors continues to have constructive dialogue with Cornwall Council about how to realise the vision for a Stadium for Cornwall and progress the transfer of land to the Stadium for Cornwall Community Interest Company (S4C CIC), to allow ground works to commence as soon as possible.
The Stadium for Cornwall team asks for you to bear with us while we work behind the scenes to deliver the Stadium we all desire, starting with ground access, the football pitch and phasing developments as funds allow.
