A – This is not a normal commercial venture. The fact is that the construction of the proposed facilities are estimated to cost approx. £12.5m of which approx. £4m net will generated from the land value created by the 19 housing plots and hotel after historic land costs. The land that makes up the remaining 85% of the site will be transferred into the Community Interest Company to be used for the benefit of the Community as a Country Park. An additional £8.5m of funding will be raised from investors and sponsors and funding from national sports bodies such as the LTA and Tennis Scotland.
