Stadium for Cornwall and housing project hits another hurdle !

Stadium for Cornwall and housing project hits another hurdle !
The plans have all been approved and as I wrote about in last months newsletter, further planning has been submitted to increase the number of residential properties being built but the now infamous site at Langarth Farm has now hit another hurdle as a legal challenge has been lodged against the retail side of the development on the edge of Truro, which could have major consequences for funding the Stadium for Cornwall.

A London based commercial property company has put in a legal appeal against the site as the company itself prepares to start work on a nearby retail park which would rival Langarth Farm for attracting large retailers.

The stadium site has been in and out of the news for years now and the problems it appeared to have looked like they had finally been resolved. Will this delay things further or cause work to grind to a halt - just a ripple in my opinion, we will see the development go ahead very soon!
