Exclusion of the Press and Public

The law allows Councils to consider a limited range of issues in private session without members of the Press and public being present.  Typically, such issues relate to personal details, financial and business affairs, legal privilege and so on.  In every case, the public interest in excluding the Press and public from the meeting room must outweigh the public interest in having the information disclosed to them. 


The Press and public may be excluded for agenda item 7 as it contains restricted information in relation to the Building Control Business Plan (all other Shared Services business plans are open). The Building Control Business Plan contains restricted information as defined in paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act (as amended). Paragraph 3 relates to ‘information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information)’.


The Press and public may also be excluded for the consideration of agenda items 8 and 9 as these items also contain restricted information as defined in paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act. 


If the Press and public are to be excluded from the meeting, the following statement will be proposed, seconded and voted upon. 


"I propose that the Press and public be excluded from the meeting during the consideration of the following item number(s) 7 in accordance with Section 100(A) (4) of the Local Government Act 1972 on the grounds that, if present, there would be disclosure to them of exempt information as defined in paragraph(s) 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act.”


The Press and public will be allowed back into the meeting room following the consideration of these items.


If exempt (confidential) information has been provided as part of the agenda, the Press and public will not be able to view it.  There will be an explanation on the website however as to why the information is exempt.
