The following assessment framework (Table 2) can be used:
- When exploring the potential of a site.
- As a guide when deciding to invest in a new location or to scale up or down investment in existing locations.
- During planning and design.
Prior location opportunities explored these domains on a case-by-case basis– in future these questions should be considered for any significant location being investigated.
The strategic considerations reflect the intent of the locations principles outlined in Section 3, and allow the identification of any site issues which would make the site incompatible with RMIT’s core commitments to place-making. The operational considerations should also be addressed in decision-making.
