Proposals for a new sports stadium in Cornwall have been announced.

Greenside Real Estate Solutions wants to build a stadium, retail and leisure park at Indian Queens, but is yet to submit a planning application.

The stadium could be a new home for the Cornish Pirates rugby club and Truro City FC.

Rival company Inox, which had plans for a 10,000-seat sports stadium on the outskirts of Truro approved in 2013, has yet to comment.

'Early days'

Malcolm Lea, from Greenside, said: "We are well aware of the need of a stadium for Cornwall and that previous proposals have not progressed.

"We believe that the site [Indian Queens] is the ideal location for the stadium, being easily accessible to a large part of the county by both road and rail."

Funding for the stadium on the outskirts of Truro has been problematic with councillors voting against providing £10m of public money towards the project.

Mr Lea said: "The retail commercial element of the development [at Indian Queens] will provide the money necessary to build the stadium."

He added it was "early days" and the plans were yet to be submitted to Cornwall Council.
