Forward Plan Omission and Special Urgency Provisions

The decision relating to the report entitled Acquisition of Land at Mile End, Kettering Terrace, Portsmouth is a Key Decision for the purposes of the Forward Plan as defined in Article 13 of the Constitution but was not included in the Forward Plan for the period from 4 January 2021 until 16 March 2021  and is therefore an omission from the Forward Plan and also an omission of explanation of exempt information contained in the exempt appendix.

 

Article 13 defines a Key decision as an Executive decision which is likely to:

 

·          result in the Council incurring expenditure or the making of savings which are significant having regard to the local authority's budget for the service or function to which the decision relates, or

 

·          be significant in terms of its effects on communities living or working in an area comprising 2 or more wards in the city's administrative area.

 

The Chair of the City Council's Scrutiny Management Panel has been notified of and agreed to the decision being made, in accordance with the City Council's Constitution (General Exceptions, Section 15) and (Special Urgency, Section 16).  As the decision must be taken by such a date that it is impracticable to defer the decision until it has been included in the next Forward Plan, this decision will not be subject to call-in. Neither has it been possible in view of the urgency to meet the usual notice period provisions.

 

The "Acquisition of Land at Mile End, Kettering Terrace, Portsmouth" report by the Director of Regeneration requires the decision to be taken by a particular date which is why urgent action is necessary.

Decision:

The omission from the Forward Plan and the publication of an omission notice was noted.

4.

Exclusion of Press and Public

In view of the contents of the following item on the agenda the Portfolio Holder 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 to the report contains information defined as exempt in Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act, 1972”.

 

Under the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) England Regulations 2012, regulation 5, the reason for exemption of the listed item is shown below.

 

(NB     The exempt/confidential committee papers on the agenda will contain information which is commercially, legally or personally sensitive and should not be divulged to third parties.  Members are reminded of standing order restrictions on the disclosure of exempt information and should dispose of their exempt documentation as confidential waste.

The public interest in maintaining the exemption must outweigh the public interest in disclosing the information.
