An update has taken place to the Soho Neighbourhood Forum mailing list.
Until now, in order to sign up to the list all that was required was a name and email address.
We are required by Localism Act 2011 and subsequent legislation to confirm that members of the neighbourhood forum are eligible to join. This is done by asking two questions about their work/living location, collecting their postcode and asking them to confirm they want to become a member.
An email has been sent to the 100+ people on the mailing list asking them to convert/join the forum by supplying these details. If you received one of these emails please answer the questions to become a forum member.
In future, everyone who joins the mailing list will be asked to enter this information and will be able to become a member right away.
