HSPA is poised to submit its Stage 2 application to the Big Lottery's Community Spaces programme. This will be for £230,000 and we have a reasonably good chance of getting our application fast-tracked so that we may have a positive outcome by the end of September. Then the build could take place next Spring. In the meanwhile the Lottery have given us a development budget which we are spending with professional advisers to make sure that our application is the best it can be.
We are also making a final attempt to persuade the Council to support the project by becoming the owner of the skate park, thus saving VAT and cementing our relationship with the Council and Highlife Highland
