Hi

Have dry fitted neck and all looks good, i have checked the height at bridge position and have 9mm with unfretted fretboard and 2.5mm with just neck. Fretted this will land ontop of bridge

Should i set the neck back a bit to allow for a bit of movement under string tension?

Thanks

This may help, posted in your other thread too: http://www.luthiersforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10102&t=15022%22

Over compensating neck angle is not advisable or necessary.

You are very welcome - some of the comments also will be helpful such as Colin's comment about backing the sandpaper with tape to help it keep from tearing.
