Webmaster is tickled pink to be able to announce a successful UPGRADE of the Drupal software driving this site from version 4.3 (anno 2004) to the latest version 5.1.

The upgrade process had to follow a strict route: From 4.3 to 4.6, followed by some extensive testing and checking , then from 4.6 to 4.7, testing and checking again to finally go from 4.7 to 5.1

There is an ability in IPA for any person to take enforcement action to enforce conditions of a DA. See s.4.3.3 at

If you are on the cruise ship do not look this way it may spoil your day!

I assume you will be following up this breach of the approval or advising us who can as Council have refused to do so despite repeated correspondence from our legal team.
