Please note:


In accordance with Regulation 4(2)(b) of the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012, the public may be excluded from the meeting for this item of business because it is likely that, if members of the public were present, there would be disclosure to them of exempt information, and the public interest in withholding this information outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information to the public.

The reason for the information being private is because ‘the relevant information relates to the financial or business affairs of a particular person (including the Authority holding that information) Paragraph 3, of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972’.

Representations requesting that the Authority give consideration to making the associated reports and any other documents relating to this matter accessible to the public should be received 7 clear days before the decision is to be taken. Any representations should be made in writing to the Chief Executive, (marked for the attention of Jo Moore, Democratic Services Unit, email: ) by 5.00pm on Tuesday 9 June 2020.
