Decision Maker: Development Sub-Committee

Decision status: Information Only

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


It was proposed by Councillor Smith-Ainsley, Seconded by Councillor Buttar and resolved that the public and press be excluded during consideration of this item, in accordance with paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended) because it was likely to disclose 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 being able to undertake even-handed negotiations and finalising acceptable contract terms.
