Migrating your account to the new My Darlington+

On Monday 2 July 2018 My Darlington+ will be getting an update.  This is mainly background work so we can rollout some new features later this year and some minor cosmetic changes.  However the first time you login after this update you will be asked to change your password. - If you currently have a username to login this will no longer work and you will need to use the email address that is registered to your account.  The instructions below will guide you through how to migrate you existing account.

Step 1

Go to https://www.darlington.gov.uk/my-darlington/ and use your email address and existing password to login.
