It is necessary to save what might have been what kept family and heritage together.

I was born and raised in Christchurch. I have lived away and come back because I love it. Part of my attachment to Christchurch revolves around many of the buildings that are now being demolished. We have lost enough. We should be preserving what we have left and rebuilding what is gone in a way that is innovative and unique. I have been to St Bartholemew's in Frankfurt which was almost obliterated by bombing during WWII. It now stands as a major tourist destination in Germany because of the forethought of the German people. We have already lost democracy in Canterbury. Let's not lose history, too!

I live in Budapest, Hungary but am from Christchurch and run my NZ company from here. If some of our architectural heritage can be preserved and a few golden patches of our lost little Albion in the South Pacific be restored, then I am all for it.

For a robust sense of who we are, as individuals and as a community, we need knowledge and experience of where we have come from.

Born and grew up in Christchurch. Now that I live overseas I realise it's even more important for some history to be preserved. As a non-religious person I feel the Cathedral transcends just a symbol of the church. It is literally the heart of the city and the most recognisable international symbol of Christchurch.

Because I love Christchurch. NZ doesn't have a lot of structural history as it is... this is a testoment to, what in the future will be, past civilizations and it's an important part of NZ's history.

Built heritage is irreplaceable and so important for tourism.
