The building is allocated adjacent to the Fore Street swimming pool and has a modest pay and display car park which has disabled bays. Several buses also stop in Fore Street. You have a secure entry door to go through and although the reception area is quite sparse, there are toilets available. You are then escorted to an interview room. Whole experience was quite pleasant and the interviewer made me feel relaxed and not rushed. Outcome had a positive result and was well worth doing.
