Just wanted to give you a quick snap shot of my business idea.
I met with the Local Council recently to put forward my proposal of creating a high-yielding multi use retail/leisure unit out of re-purposed shipping containers. They are very keen on the idea and have taken it back to the planning and regeneration departments for a decision either way and will give me initial feedback in the next few days.
They require sketches from an architect to see how it would look from a street perspective. They have also requested a complete business plan with accurate financials.
After meeting with an architect on Friday afternoon they require £1500+VAT to complete the initial work I require
I have also contacted a Business Consultant, who requires £250+VAT to create a business plan to gain further investment.
The Local council have stated that they will match-fund any funding I am able to receive from other sources.
