    *This survey has now closed. Thank you to everyone who took part. We'll be presenting the results to the rebuilding working group and then preparing concept sketches for further input.*

    One of the key rebuilding steps is the need to prepare some basic concept sketches before we can progress to the next stage of having architect plans and more detailed documentation developed.

    Your input now will help create concept sketches which we can seek further community input on before finalising plans.
