Following this consultation, it was found that the a supporting paper to the plan the ‘Basic Condition Statement’ requires alterations to be made in order for it to comply with national policy.It is therefore necessary to run the Regulation16 consultation again ,with an amended Basic Condition Statement.
Only the Basic Condition Statement has been altered - the Epperstone Parish Draft Neighbourhood Plan is not affected and remains the same as it was in the first Regulation 16 consultation .

Please note that if you have already submitted representations on the Epperstone Draft Neighbourhood Plan ,you should not resubmit them.Your original representation will be taken into consideration and you do not need to repeat it .Please submit further representations only if feel it necessary in light of the new Basic Condition Statement. 

The Plan ,the amended Basic Condition Statement, accompanying documents and the response form are available on the NSDC website as originally advised above .
