The government of Cornwall has considered the need to construct a road for a new town that would set up in the area for £47 million.

The construction in Truro would see thousands of new properties, schools, and markets set up. It would also include a brand new stadium as a sports center and attraction. This would be enough for up to 8,000 residents to stay in, and it might even boost tourism in Cornwall as well.

Housing Minister Kit Malthouse has gone on the record to say that the money would go to the housing of the new town, noting that there have not been enough homes built by the government and that urgent action is required to change that.

The Northern Access Road (NAR) would be given access to the Cornwall Council with government permission. According to the Local Democracy Reporting Service (LDRS), the road would create a link from the A390 to the west of Langarth, near Threemilestone, and then all the way to the Royal Cornwall Hospital at Treliske,

The Ministry of Housing, Communities, and Local Government announced that the road will also cut down congestion and allow for the construction of new homes and schools along the way.

The new Stadium for Cornwall had the capacity to house at least 10,000 supporters and even host Premiership rugby.

The announcement regarding the Stadium for Cornwall where the Cornish Pirates and Truro City FC would be based in. The government has yet to see if the plans will match with the Council’s £3m budget given to the project.

Councillor Bob Egerton noted that the road would help set up the new community that would complement with the town of Truro. As for Dulcie Tudor, Threemilestone and Gloweth councillor, she hopes that the announcement would be the first of many that would see a further commitment for the setup of the Stadium for Cornwall.
