    You local council wants YOUR business, they will try and give you good deals on renting property. If you have trading estates near you check the area out, then see the council.

    Long as you know what your after then YES they will be able to offer assistance. Id be more inclined to speak to a business centre. If is a new business there are many grants available so thats where the business Centre comes in to offer advice.

    Id say do a bit of research before you go. If its a new venture have a business plan. Show who you plan to market at, what capital is actually needed to get off the ground. You need to look as though you have worked everything out, go there with a good idea and business plan back up and im sure they will be able to point you in the right direction.

    Id rent as apposed to buy, purely based on the fact that if it doesent work out to plan your not left with property on your hands. you will also get grants, rent rebates probably for first 6 months etc etc.
