Phase 1 of Inverness Leisure Centre was the construction of the £3m Inverness Sport Centre. Alan carried out district-wide consultations on the need for Inverness to have a high quality indoor sports centre.
Following these consultations, he secured £3m to build phase 1 which included the two sports halls, the social space (now fitness suite), projectile hall and dance studio. This was quickly followed by phase two, the Inverness Aquadome.
To facilitate the funding and management of the Aquadome, Alan set up an arm’s length organisation (ALO). This new leisure trust (now Inverness Leisure) assisted in facilitating the securing of funding in the sum of £10m to enable the Aquadome to be built with having to have any loan charges. Alan secured the full £10m to fund this project.
