Cornwall Council has approved a planning application for an out of town shopping centre which will pay for the new Stadium for Cornwall.
Permission had already been granted for the stadium on the outskirts of Truro - but the money to build it depended on permission for a shopping development at West Langarth, about four miles from the city centre.
That's just been approved, against the recommendation of council officials.
