Truro City could return home as development plans stall Oct 12, 2018 | Headlines

Cornwall Live report that Truro City could be set for a return to their home ground in the city after revealing plans to redevelop the ground had reached a standstill.
The National League South team have been playing their home games at Torquay United after being evicted from their home at Treyew Road in Truro.
Treyew Road has planning permission for a retail development which is set to have a Lidl supermarket.
However club chairman Peter Masters told a packed public meeting for supporters that developers Helical Retail were no longer moving ahead with the plans.
Mr Masters told the club’s supporters that Helical was looking to secure someone else to take the project forward but said that if they don’t then the club could return home.

This, a day or so after it was announced that Cornish pirates may have to increase their investment in Satdium Cornawll as Truro are unlikely to meet their commitment and the Government are yet to approvfe their funding input either....

Have already booked a night in Torquay. Oh well its not that a big deal to get a train from there to Truro.

What did you expect to see from a hotel window in Torquay?




Deadly Towers. :lol:

This latest news is not really a surprise considering their chairman's track record on announcements.
Another certain move previously was to Bodmin for instance.
Wherever the match is played, no doubt Bobby will be up at the crack of dawn to ensure that if there is a pitch inspection, that it is properly conducted, and not another farcical Cornish Opera.

Are the club being proactive here both with Truro and more importantly the league to ensure that any venue change must be agreed by a certain date, especially given that supporters want to book trains etc?

This has a venue switch followed by waterlogged pitch written all over it....

You are still a good two and a half hours from Truro if you stay in Exeter. For those booking hotels there is sometimes a free cancellation available if you book on the likes of Expedia.

The train tickets however aren't so generous.

My advice would be to buy an advanced purchase ticket to Newton Abbott regardless of where the venue is. If it's at Torquay then it's a few quid extra on the day. If it's truro it will be a bit more. Of course there is potential to get that leg of the journey as an advance purchase. However the expensive bit will be London to Devon/Cornwall. So get in there asap although at present it isn't yet released.
