In Cornwall  the Eden Project, Hall4Cornwall and Falmouth Univercity all were "Dreckly" projects. They are now all multi million pound sustainable successful ventures. That is why i am confident the Stadium4Cornwall wil be the same and confirmed before the end of this month.

OldNick is a true Rugby fan and can be very critical. He has slated Ealing Trailfinders facilities in the past and going way back our quagmire of a grass pitch before 3G.

Our WC,s or lack of them,how long it took to get a beer and the extortionate cost of food!. He was right on all accounts.

I was at a pre match celebratory meal at Cornish Pirates where the room was buzzing with excitement about the start of construction at the new ground.I bought raffle tickets for the honour of the 'breaking of ground' This was in May 2018 and here we are !.

I look forward to visiting the new ground but I agree with OldNick that there have been too many false starts.
Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

OldNick is a pain in the backside, I had a run in with him on a different rugby forum after he slated the officials for his team losing. Come to think of it he's quite a negative person, must be an age thing.

Your faith and tenacity should be rewarded and I am sure that it will be.
If when Doncaster play the Pirates before the Pirates  are promoted we will continue to stay in Penzance but could we travel on any supporters coaches going from Penzance to Truro .It would be a fun trip!!

Thanks - we've been fighting negativity and ill-informed naysayers for many years, so I'll always fight our corner. 
On travel to Truro from PZ, hopefully transport will be laid on for those of us in the PZ area. As Dotcom says, rail travel would be pretty convenient, and there is a park and ride adjacent to the stadium site.

No doubt there will be an ever-reliable First bus service from Truro train station to the new Langarth town. I would imagine this would make traveling from PZ relatively straight forward. That being said I would imagine there will be a new bus directly from PZ to Langarth, assuming they don't simply extend the existing Tinner services to cover it.

The new December Train Timetable should see trains PZ- Plymouth  every half hour - almost a turn up & go service and all stop Truro

So that is another 21 leauge games and whatever cup fixtures they have  - but what gate do they attract?
How much investment would they need to move up from Southern league even to league 2?

Cannon your correct that Truro FC will play at the Stadium. Pirates owner Dicky Evans took over the club in June.

The complex will also have a Gym and Dance studio. Planning also passed for Luxury Hotel on site. The Pirates owner is a very successful International business man i  have no doubt that he will also be successful in this venture as well.

I thought Truro FC were talking about using it too?

15 home games a season with a gate of 10000 paying £30 equates to £4.5 m with sponsorship/tv etc lets say £7m maximum. Is that sufficient to sort out the stadium long term AND sustain a Prem club? I'm happy to see the outline figures used in the business plan. Does this involve taxpayers money as well?

I'm not being negative merely realistic.

The rugby is only one facet of the stadium business plan. Truro College are basing their catering and hospitality department there - so the site will be in use constantly by them. There is also a planned conference centre plus many other users.

Do you have a problem getting up in the morning? Interesting to know your location other than broad United Kingdom.Like our local Naysayers you will be disappointed when the project construction starts this year.

I have no difficulty getting up in the morning.

I shall be delighted when you have a decent stadium down in Cornwall, even though I shall miss watching matches in Penzance. I’ve visited when CP have played away before, and it has not been the same.

The trouble is that the ‘announcements’ that are being made are all vapourware. Smoke and mirrors, increasingly desperate. They are doing more harm than good, because they are all promises.
None of them actually show progress. They show vague unspecified ‘jam tomorrow’ hopes of progress.

I live in a city where the local football club has been promising a new stadium for years. Every year it doesn’t happen, the less people trust that it ever will happen.

Stadium for Cornwall is, in my opinion, getting to that stage.
Politically, every day that government money is not confirmed, the less likely it is to survive Brexit, to serve the change of PM, to survive potential changes in government. Which politician will support a scheme to provide a stadium for what is seen nationally as an elitist, minority sport, in a distant county, with one of the smallest populations in the country?

That is why I am worried that you will never get your ground, worried that your inept communication is getting desperate, and believe that the people behind it are also looking increasingly worried that it will never happen.

You asked. That’s how it looks.

Your interpretation of the statement is way off the mark. Completion of the land transfer is imminent, and that will release the government funds. Your impression from hundreds of miles away that "the people behind it are also looking worried that it will never happen" could not be further from the truth.
