Cornwall Councillor Bob Egerton reported that  the Land and Funding should be completed by the end of the month. See report on www.cornwalllive.com.

I've just been to Cornwall - a long way and relatively small population .

Given that Exeter has a Prem Club ( albeit with a ground that requires expansion) is it likely that prem rugby is sustainable further down the peninsular?

Just asking ...

Bigmal good point. On the positive side Cornwall rugby has no competition from big Football league clubs like other areas of UK. Population of Cornwall is growing to 600,000 plus millions of tourist.

Without a doubt - if we had a premiership team in Cornwall the following would be massive. Pirates v Gloms, Bath, Exeter or Bristol would fill up the new stadium.

https://cornish-pirates.com/news 404 page not found.

http://stadium4cornwall.blogspot.com/ - has the report...

Land not yet transferred, but it’s close.
Funding not yet..., but it’s close
Once funding received, we need more funding from shareholders and supporters to build phase , so it’s close to starting this fundraising.
Planning phase 2 (to provide long-term sustainability), not so close.

Given the Press piece three days ago there’s clearly a PR campaign going on to persuade someone that it’s getting close, but it’s not clear who. Is it trying to jog the government into committing their share?

The article states that the transfer of the land is the key to the release of the promised government money. The council themselves have said this transfer is imminent - probably before the end of the month. When that is in place the build can start. Your sarcastic summation of the situation is typical of the negativity that has held this project up for so long.

Failure to complete on the land transfer, not my comments, is what is delaying the project.

Publicising this failure to complete, is what is pointing out this failure, and raising more doubts every time it is done.

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.

As an impartial observer I think it is right to be cautious - you just have to look at the TWO new stadiums promised in Bristol for the footy teams which came to naught. Using Bristol as an example though the redevelopment of Ashton Gate has benefitted not only a range of sports but the local economy.

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.

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.

Let it all wash over you.
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!!
