Falmouth Rugby Club have been denied planning permission on two separate occasions since buying land at Menehay Farm back in 2007 for £200,000. The original plans was to move permanently to the new land, however campaigns such as ‘Save Our Rec’ prevented them from doing so. This year Falmouth’s alternative plans to build 226 new houses on the land instead has also been blocked by the council, a move that Chairman James instance has labelled as “disappointing”.
