So whenever government, boroughs or council desire or are solicited by developers/contractors, then begins lengthy negotiations that can last several years. Each part tends to hold onto their best interests the longest, and who could blame them for doing so. But the consequence is that projects get delayed and happen months or years after they’ve been initiated.
In some cases, this process is the right one. But in many scenarios, the time and money involved is unnecessary and could be greatly reduce, were it easy to find space available for the length of the project, at a convenient location.
Utilising existing infrastructure presents great benefit: it significantly reduces the cost of the project, considerably reduces the time from start to finish – meaning councils will be able to demonstrate more results during their tenancy (wrong word), thus increasing the public’s trust in their able to make provoque change. By reducing the need for new builds, it frees otherwise occupied space for other uses, such as parks, play areas, nurseries, community centres, schools, etc.
As for fulfilment centres, they’re able to have a better coverage of the distribution areas by spreading their spokes warehouses closer to the destination. And because it often comes down to a question of proximity and cost, what if you could have a clear view of the different options available to choose from at market value?
