It is worth differentiating between the problem s of location and   of site the location is the general area, and the site is the place chosen within the location. The decision on sitting thus probably proceeds in two stages: in the first the general area is chosen and then a detailed survey of that area is carried out to find possible sites. The final decision is made by taking into account more detailed requirements.
