    Exempt Report - West Wing, procurement of construction services - Key Decision

    By virtue of paragraph(s) 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972.

    Explanation of Reasons

    Reason restricted justification

    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.
