Tested out the effect of manual nova compute access policy changes. Have decided on project-role-based access control as opposed to project-based access control in order to minimise changes to the access policy file. Also need to test the ability to custom create user accounts on the admin panel of the dashboard.

Continued working on the design of the new pages. Next step will be to integrate the admin panel into the dashboard and to test out the changing of the access policy to restrict user access.
