Soccer club bids for new stadium
As well as football the stadium might host rugby and other events
A new 16,000-seater stadium could be built in Truro as a new home for the city's football club.

Truro City FC says the proposal could provide a venue for both football and rugby matches, as well as large scale entertainment and community events.

The new 16m stadium would be the biggest in the county.

The club says it would welcome running the stadium as a shared ground and discussions have already taken place with Penzance Pirates Rugby Club.

The Pirates announced two months ago announced they would be moving to a purpose-built stadium at a site yet to be decided.

The owner of Truro City Football Club, Kevin Heaney, has brought together a team to look at ways of redeveloping the club with the aim of establishing a centre of sporting excellence for Cornwall.

In addition, the club is submitting plans to increase its car parking facility to about 750 spaces.

It will also provide a park-and-ride facility for Truro.
