Mapping your area

This may mean looking for a site or building. This can be done by:

  • Conducting a walkabout of the area where the project would be most ideally situated with a map and taking details of building or sites that are currently vacant or underused and look like they may be potentially used for the project in question. There are a number of pros and cons that can be considered when looking at sites and buildings in relation to viability – for a simple list of issues to consider click here
  • Talking to the local council about the idea and where it may be located or whether there is potential to share a site/building with others.
