Who will pay for the development of the new building?
The majority of our funding will come from organisations such as London Marathon Charitable Trust, Sport England Community Investment Fund and Big Lottery Fund. We will also seek funding from the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.
Who will own the new building?
Richmond Council owns the current structure and will own the new structure.
So will Richmond Council run & maintain the new facility?
The expectation is that the facility will be leased back to our charity to run.
Richmond Council will attach conditions to the lease, in the interests of overall sustainability of the project for the whole community.
How will the Charity run the facility once it has opened?
We are recruiting volunteers to an Operations Committee.
Please get involved if you have skills to offer and time available!
