There are advantages and disadvantages to both sites, with the help of the factors identified above I will identify and evaluate the pros and cons of each site.

Because they area of high unemployment there incentives in moving into the areas. A large deciding factor for me would be the price of land; the Longbenton site offers what the company want interns of size and price. The last deciding factor would the person decision of the management and directors. For large amounts of reasons I would use the Longbenton site, on the other hand there are advantages of Bolton site. Because of over weighing factors I would use the Longbenton site ...read more.
