Exclusion of the Press and Public

(NB the appendix to planning application 17/01807/FUL - Land Adjacent to (south of) Catherine House Stanhope Road, Portsmouth, PO1 1DZ is exempt so if members wish to discuss this, they will need to pass the resolution below)


That in the view of the contents of the following item on the agenda the committee is RECOMMENDED to adopt the following motion: "That, under the provisions of Section 100A of the Local Government Act, 1972 as amended by the Local Government (Access to Information) Act, 1985, the press and public be excluded for the consideration of the following item on the grounds that the appendix contains information defined as exempt in paragraph 3, Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, and that paragraphs 8 and 9 of Part 1, Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 do not apply so as to prevent exemption, and, further, in all the circumstances the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information"


The public interest in maintaining the exemption must outweigh the public interest in disclosing the information.  In the event that the Committee finds that the public interest does not weigh in favour of maintaining the exemption, it is RECOMMENDED that the item is deferred. 


Under the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) England Regulations 2012, regulation 5, the reasons for exemption of the listed item is shown below.  (NB the exempt appendix will contain information which is commercially, legally or personally sensitive and confidential and should not be divulged to third parties.  Members are reminded of standing order restrictions on the disclosure of exempt information and are invited to return their exempt documentation to the Local Democracy Officer at the conclusion of the meeting for shredding).
