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.
