MDG have collated the feedback from the July webinar and subsequent community engagment.

Draft Phase One plans are now available to view, providing a visual of where the community have placed their support for the initial concept ideas.

This information will then be reviewed with the community once complete, to seek further comments and support prior to finalising.
