This week’s news of the Waitrose offer: rent free premises and an interest free loan to Taste of Cornwall is truly the stuff of scandal, except the word has little meaning today when big business continually gets away with unscrupulous practise. The big question is: when is a bribe not a bribe? However, campaigners against [...]

Dear Mr. Vella I am not local so I appreciate that my comments carry no weight with Cornwall council.  However, since I lived in Penwith, on and off, for ten happy years, and still visit Cornwall regularly, I want to express my support for the city council’s rejection of this scheme (Guardian Saturday 14th January). “Truro [...]

……when we can already buy wonderful Cornish produce in our local Co-operative in the centre of Truro. Riviera Produce (David Simmons) is typical of the backers behind the Taste of Cornwall – large, successful and already supplying major supermarkets. No doubt, they’d welcome one more outlet but it’s hardly make or break for them. On [...]

Row over Duchy plan for food superstore

The Duchy of Cornwall has been branded “hypocritical” after backing a scheme on the outskirts of Truro which protesters say will ruin a beautiful green valley. Plans for The Cornish Food Centre would create a small branch of supermarket chain Waitrose, as well as a venue to sell local produce. It is part of the [...]

From Bert Biscoe – published in West Briton 25th August ‘Good morning, Madam! No, I’m sorry, you can’t buy milk from cows fed on maize from the land we’re standing on, because we had to build our supermarket here – it was so much more convenient for us than adapting ourselves to fit into the [...]

This whole scheme reeks of excuses, lies and double-dealing

I agree entirely with Philip Buddell’s points but the main point being missed by it seems everyone is the vast increase in traffic using the approach roads to the present traffic lights at the A39/A390 junction.

We need to keep Truro unique

As one of the last butchers in Truro and Landlord of Truro’s Pannier Market with a large amount of independent market traders, the planners do not seem to realise that the pie is only so big! If this scheme goes ahead, Truro will be flanked on all sides with supermarkets and we will become just [...]
