A COMMUNITY engagement evening is being hosted by Truro City FC in order for local residents to hear the latest on its stadium plans and have their say.

The community engagement event will take place on Tuesday, January 24 between 5:30pm and 7:30pm at the Threemilestone Community Centre. 

Residents are being encouraged to go along to the evening for information on what's happening and to give their say on the project, which is being described as a "community hub." 

Back in November of last year, Truro City FC revealed its plans to build a new stadium, having been playing its games in Devon since 2021.

Truro City FC has designed the new 3,000-capacity ground after selling its previous home, Treyew Road, last summer.

The location of the new stadium will be on the site of the failed Stadium for Cornwall, which Cornwall Council decided against putting forward for government leveling up funding.

The new stadium will reportedly be paid for using money from the sale of Treyew Road, which has been held by Cornwall Council.

In June of 2022, the chairperson of the Stadium for Cornwall expressed how "incredibly disappointed” the group was at Cornwall Council’s decision to withdraw the stadium bid from its Levelling Up programme.

The project had experienced similar disappointment the year before in 2021 when then chancellor now Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, did not pledge any funding for the project in his autumn budget.

Setting up the event, Truro City FC said: "Truro City Football Club would like to invite everyone to Threemilestone Community Centre on Tuesday 24th January from 5:30-7:30pm to discuss our plans for the new Truro City FC Community Hub."
