    Registration

    You will need to register to start topics or post replies in this forum. When registering we need to verify that you qualify.

    Forum users with email addresses from local authorities, parish councils and other governmental bodies should be automatically registered as their e-mail addresses will end with .gov.uk.

    Other e-mail addresses may be blocked until we can verify that you qualify.

    To speed up the process please e-mail the Forum administrator to provide brief background information about your organisation and explain why it would be helpful for you to gain access to the Forum.

    To begin your registration process – click here.

    If your email address ends in .gov.uk you will be sent an email to that address containing your password. If not, your registration will be held in a moderation queue and be approved manually by a site admin. When approved, you will be sent an email containing your password.
