Football complex plans go on show
The club has previously floated plans for a 12m stadium
Plans for a 7m football training complex for Truro City FC have gone on show to the public.

The club wants to build two new pitches and a club house on land in Kenwyn, Truro with a 60-bed hotel and offices at its present Treyew Road base.

The club said the complex would be used by its 500 players and be a "central sporting hub for the community".

Tuesday's exhibition at Treyew Road was the first consultative step needed before being considered by planners.

Chris Webb, the club's head of development, said current training facilities were too scattered.

"We are training everywhere," he said.

"It's really getting everyone together so we can make this a self-sufficient club."

The hotel and offices at Treyew Road would be built to help fund the new training complex.

The club has previously floated plans for a 12m stadium at the site, but residents opposed to the idea said the roads could not cope with extra traffic.
