Our consultant has amended the housing paper to correct an error on page 14 where an Appendix 2 was referenced. This reference should have been deleted by the consultant as the appendix had originally referred to the e-mail
exchange mentioned under Comments/Conclusions on the same page. This exchange is now covered under Comments/Conclusions in the amended version.  Could you please replace the existing version on the website with the
amended version attached.  Meeting Housing Requirement Report June 2016.  Tony Swainson Secretary NDP 19.7.16



Border Group Parish Councils new Chair is Cllr. Paul Derrick who was voted in at the recent Annual General Meeting held at Lingen Village Hall.  Paul is councillor for Buckton & Coxall and we wish him well in his year of office.  Cllr. Simon (Sam) Whiteman remains as Vice Chair. 05/16

Parish Council the vacancy for Willey parish has now been filled by Trevor Pritchard who was co-opted onto the parish council sometime late last year.  Therefore, both the Brampton Bryan and Willey vacancies are now filled which arose due to two councillors being disqualified from office last year for failing to correctly submit their Declarations of Acceptance of Office, which is a statutory requirement.
