An erratum was published on 15/10/2014 at {description}.

Paragraphs three and four on page 1 and paragraph one on page 2 were removed as follows:

People can still ask for changes to the Bill while the Scottish Parliament is looking at it. This can be done by writing to the Local Government and Regeneration Committee who will be looking carefully at what is in the Bill.
The closing date is Friday 5 September 2014. Comments should be no more than eight pages long in a Word Document. These should be emailed, if possible, to: communityempowermentbill@scottish.parliament.uk

Responses can also be sent by post to: Clerk to the Local Government and Regeneration Committee, Committee Office, Room T3.40, Scottish
Parliament, Edinburgh, EH99 1SP.

You can also contact your local Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) to ask them to suggest changes to the Bill. An MSP is the person who is elected to speak for local people in the Scottish Parliament.

The pdf and html have both been updated within the document to reflect these changes.
