No. Item




Declaration of personal/prejudicial interest


Confidential item

The Monitoring Officer has determined that Category 8 of the Access to Information Procedure Rules applies to the following report (appendix 3 and 4 of item 4).  Her view on the public interest test (having taken account of the provisions of Rule 11.8 of the Council’s Access to Information Rules) was that to make this information public would disclose information relating to a particular individual and would allow information to enter the public domain before the individual has had an opportunity to make representations in respect of it.  These factors in her view outweigh the public interest in disclosing the information at this stage.


Members are asked to consider these factors when determining the public interest test, which they must decide when considering whether:

•         the exempt item should remain exempt, and

•         to exclude the public from the meeting.
