Safety notice for members of the public - Covid-19

Members of the public may attend a meeting in person to observe the meeting or to speak. However, in the interests of safety for all attendees, due to the continuing need to minimise risk of transmission of COVID-19, where possible, members of the public are strongly urged to consider participate remotely instead of in person. Please also note, the seating available for members of the public is severely restricted to enable social distancing. If you nevertheless intend to be present in person, please contact Democratic Services to request a place. Finally, members of the public are asked to take note of safety measures currently recommended for public meetings, such as the request that all those attending in person wear a face covering throughout the meeting where possible. The ability to join the meeting remotely is considered the preferred option for these reasons.

To Note the Date of the next meeting

Thursday 3 March 2022 at 5.20pm

Exclusion of 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 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) ….. 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) ….. of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act.”

 

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.
