Truro City manager Steve Tully hailed the work of club chairman Peter Masters in the wake of the Silver Bow development being given the green light.
The recently promoted side currently play their home games at Treyew Road but plans for a new stadium were approved by Cornwall Council on Thursday.
Tully, who guided the White Tigers to promotion to the Conference South via the play-offs last season, is delighted with the news and paid tribute to those who have worked tirelessly to make the plans a reality.
“Obviously it’s great news for the club,” he said.
“I’m delighted for the chairman in particular because he has done a lot of hard work behind the scenes with these plans.
“I’ve had the privilege of seeing how much work he’s done since I’ve come in and I know that he has had a long-term vision for the club for a while.
“So the good news about the development is credit to him, really.”
The Cornish side have had their work cut out during recent years at Treyew Road and had to make plenty of adjustments to make sure that it was up to the standard required by their new division.
Tully continued: “At the start of last season a lot had to be done to get the stadium ready to be played on because it is an old ground.
“And there’s been plenty to do to get it up to Conference South standard too.
“So this will create a massive feel-good factor amongst the players and will provide a real platform for the club to push on into the future.
“We’re in the Conference South now but with these developments we can really look at pushing into the Conference because that is our main aim.”
