    Exempt report - Acquisition V - Key decision

    Councillor Ian Harvey

     

    To consider the acquisition of a property for financial and asset investment purposes.

     

    Reason for exemption

    This report contains exempt information within the meaning of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, as amended by the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985 and by the Local Government (Access to information) (Variation) Order 2006 Paragraph 3 – Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information) and in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information because, disclosure to the public would prejudice the financial position of the authority in the bidding process for the site by allowing other bidders to know the position of the Council.  This in turn prejudices the Council by (i) distorting the bids process and (ii) prejudicing the opportunity for the Council to acquire a site through the Council for the prudent management of its financial affairs.

    11.

    Exempt report - Decision on award of contract for the provision of a Property Management System - Key Decision

    Councillor Ian Harvey

     

    To consider an exempt report on the award of a contract to provide a Property Management System.

    This report contains exempt information within the meaning of paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972, as amended by the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985 and by the Local Government (Access to information) (Variation) Order 2006):

    Paragraph 3 - Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information). 

     

    In all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information because, it would be too speculative at this time to give an indication of contract value to the market and to disclose information as this stage might distort price submissions in any tender processes that are held in the future.

    Exempt report - West Wing, Council Offices, Knowle Green, Staines - Key Decision

    Councillor Ian Harvey

     

    To consider an exempt report on the procurement of construction services for conversion of the West Wing, Council Offices.

    This report contains exempt information within the meaning of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, as amended by the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985 and by the Local Government (Access to information) (Variation) Order 2006:

    Paragraph 3 – Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information) and in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information because, disclosure to the public would prejudice the financial position of the authority in the bidding procurement of contracts by allowing other parties to know the position of the Council.  This in turn prejudices the Council by (i) distorting the procurement process and (ii) prejudicing the opportunity for the Council to place contracts for the prudent management of its financial affairs.
