Alan Jones Associates was appointed the consultancy to carry out the Feasibility Study, and thereafter, retained as Project Manager charged with the responsibility of finding this funding. Funding was secured from Scottish Government’s Active Places, Inverness Common Good Fund, Big Lottery Awards for All, and Families and Communities Funds, as well as the Ward Discretionary budget.
Phases 1 saw the installation of £450,000 of new, innovative and disabled-friendly play equipment.
Alan Jones Associates were commissioned to carry out a second Feasibility Study for Phase 2. This study identified Public Toilets, Community Café and Scooter/Wheeled Sports Facilities as the community’s expressed needs. Alan secured full planning permission for the new Wheeled Sports facility and funding is currently being sought.
