My business address location is outside of the area where I deliver services. The delivery area (Bristol +more) is correct and business address verified. When I search for my services in my chosen delivery area e.g. 'planning agent Bristol' I do not appear on the list of results. Am I doing something wrong? How do I get my business to appear in these areas or do I have to have a business address in each area?

You will most likely only rank in the city you are located in. You are not allowed to create other listings in nearby towns unless you have physical offices there (like retail).  This is the way the map was intended and if you want more exposure in surrounding cities, that's what AdWords is for :)
