I intend to purchase and erect a 16 x 27 foot polytunnel next month but I am unsure of how to layout the inside. I will be growing veg and some flowers in it. Do I spend more money and put in raised beds or grow on the flat and waste no space?

i would go with raised beds..one main bed running down the centre of the tunnel. id have a just wide enough to walk. path either side with smaller beds running the lenght of the tunnel. a bit like this guy.

The idea of one big bed down the middle and one smaller each side seems like a goo idea ok.
