Feasibility

Current space expenditure (monthly):

Rent
£1900
Water
£20
Electricity
£80
Council tax
£60 (currently 0-rated)
Total
£2000

Current space income (monthly):

Subscriptions
£2921
Total
£2921

We currently have a surplus of £900/month. We would need approximately £1100/month more income to rent the unit next door: about 44 new members or everyone increasing their subscription by £9/month.

Possibilities

Unit 23

The unit adjacent to the current hackspace is currently unoccupied.

Pros:

  • Relatively easy to do.

Issues:

  • Can a doorway between the two be fitted?
  • Is there any possibility of discounts from leasing two units?
  • Would make us liable for council tax.
  • No walls in unit 23.

New Unit

Pros:

  • Better transport links.

Potential issues:

  • Large amount of effort required to identify and select candidates.
  • If a good candidate is found without many internal features, a large one-off cost to fit it out would be incurred.
  • Suitable candidates are likely to be more expensive per unit area, as it seems hard to justify moving without being more central.
