  4. the ease and cost of travel to a hearing;
  5. the availability and suitability of alternative means of attending a hearing (for example, by videolink);
  6. the extent and nature of media interest in the proceedings in any particular locality;
  7. the time within which it is appropriate for the proceedings to be determined;
  8. whether it is desirable to administer or determine the claim in another region in the light of the volume of claims issued at, and the capacity, resources and workload of, the court at which it is issued;
