Plans for an Angel of the North-type Celtic cross marking the Gateway to Cornwall have come under fire.
Opposition to the 20-meter (66ft) structure says the money should go to provide footpaths through Elwell Wood, next to the Tamar Bridge in Saltash.
Some £450,000 is being sought from the National Lottery Community Spaces award to fund the sculpture (by Simon Thomas) and to transform the wood with a community orchard, fitness trail and sensory garden. Those opposed to the plan say the facilities would be better placed elsewhere in the town.
