  1. Stadium for Cornwall … CORNWALL … paid for with Cornish peoples’ Council Tax. I’m expecting to find the business benefits to residents of Bude, Saltash, Padstow, Roseland and Carlyon Bay in that business plan, particularly if everyone’s money is going to be sequestered from other services elsewhere to pay for the bloody thing.

  2. Why don’t they come and ask the residents in Threemilestone and Truro what they feel. As usual, the wishes and opinions of local people are being ignored. As far as I can see, this will simply disadvantage us. And given that we should be working towards a low carbon economy, I want to see a proper environmental assessment report, including the total carbon footprint over its lifetime, the expected rise in air pollution down the Highertown corridor, already designated an Air Quality Management Area because of high levels of particulates and nitrous oxide, and a cycling and walking plan!

  3. Put quite simply. A business plan for a project of this complexity cannot be written in a week. Therefore whatever Cornwall Council officers produce will be full of holes. This needs a good business plan to gain funding.
