Information regarding two tentative sites for the construction of a new school in the Canterbury town is plotted in the given map.

As per the first proposal, the site: S1 is located in the countryside, towards the East of the township. It can be accessed by a main road, which stretches from Chartham to Sturry. Apart from the Canterbury’s population, it can also facilitate the educational needs of the 7000 inhabitants in Sturry, which lies proximal to its location. Not so far from the university towards its Northwest, it should be noted that this site is ideal for a school as it is away from the distractions of the town.

The second site: S2 is located towards the South of the town centre, which is a no traffic zone. The highlight of this site is that it is accessible for both the people of Chartham (population: 4500) and Sturry (population: 7000), in addition to the town’s population. At almost equidistance lies the university at the North and other major locations to the site.

Overall, it is clear that while the first site provides an ideal study atmosphere, the second can facilitate more people.
