Please note: this report contains both exempt and non-exempt

information.

 

To discuss the exempt information detailed in the appendices to

the published report, consideration must first be given to whether

the public and press should be excluded from the meeting b

passing the following resolution:-

 

In accordance with Regulation 4 (2)(b) of the Local Authorities

(Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information)

(England) Regulations 2012, consideration must be given to

confirm whether members of the public and press should be

excluded from the meeting for this item of business because it is

likely that, if present there would be disclosure to them of exempt

information as defined in Paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12 A

to the Act, and the public interest in withholding the information

outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information to the

public.

Minutes:

10.1    Cllr Lynden Stowe sought approval for the proposed Schedule of Disposals in order to meet capital receipt targets.

 

10.2    Prior to the discussion, members were advised that, should Cabinet wish to discuss the contents of the exempt information reported at Appendix A of the report, consideration would need to be given as to whether the press and public should be excluded from the meeting in accordance with Regulation 4(2)(b) of the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012.

 

10.3    Cabinet agreed to consider this item without having to refer to the exempt information.

 

10.4    Cllr Stowe outlined that Appendix A of the report contained units already identified as surplus to requirement and required re-confirmed agreement from Cabinet to remain on the disposals list. Appendix B was the new schedule of disposals for approval.

 

10.5    He emphasised that capital receipts generated from the disposal of property would be used towards financing of the current capital programme which was £43.059 million. Without those receipts, the cost of borrowing would go up and the council would incur additional revenue costs.
