2. Is it Level 3?

2.1. Focused and achievable- field of research being limited to area of Market Hill only, final outcome being an artefact of urban design + assessment of commercial and leisure space within certain physical parameters

2.2. Offers good scope for development- final outcome (artist impression) can continuously be drafted and improved.

External factors can also be considered in terms of environment, future generational use and thus sustainability.

3. Project Specific Skills

3.1. Drawing from observation

3.2. CAD via Google Sketchup alongside artist impression- is this doable? Need to relearn Sketchup tools first

3.3. Shopper surveys around Market Hill

3.4. Emailing local council about planned development

3.5. Primary research availability- see above
