Three of the four clubs relegated from Conference National have been allocated to Conference North, these being Altrincham, Histon and Southport, while Eastbourne Borough return to Conference South.
Burscough FC were reprieved from relegation at Step 3 and retain their place in the Northern Premier League. The resignations of both Glapwell and Retford United from the Northern Premier League at Step 4 led to both Beaconsfield SYCOB and Waltham Forest being reprieved from the drop to Step 5, joining Chatham whom had earned an earlier reprieve due to a vacancy at Step 4.
Ilkeston FC, the new club taking the place of the now defunct Ilkeston Town FC, have been placed at Step 4 in the Northern Premier League Division 1 South. Their places in the NPL will be taken by Bedworth United and Rugby Town who both move from the Southern League Central Division.
There are still a number of unresolved issues and the agreed allocations may be subject to further change.
