Pros and Cons of taking on extra land

Successful groups who have done a good job with a project frequently find that they are offered additional sites to work their magic on.  We often find that these groups feel obliged to say yes to the extra land but with hindsight they wished they had said no!

The aim of this guidance is to support you through this decision process, giving you points to consider so you can decide whether  your group should say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to taking on extra land.
