The Committee had before it a *report of the Interim Development Management Manager.
The Chairman indicated that discussion with regard to this item, may require the Committee to pass the following resolution to exclude the press and public having reflected on Article 12 12.02(d) (a presumption in favour of openness) of the Constitution. This decision may be required because consideration of this matter in public may disclose information falling within one of the descriptions of exempt information in Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972. The Committee would need to decide whether, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption, outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.
RESOLVED that under Section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act 1972 the public be excluded from the next item of business on the grounds that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in paragraph 5 respectively of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act, information in respect of which a claim to legal professional privilege could be maintained in legal proceedings.
(Proposed by the Chairman)
Consideration was given to the report before Members and it was:
RESOLVED that Option 2 as outlined in the report be pursued.
(Proposed by Cllr B G J Warren and seconded by Cllr S J Clist)
i) Cllr F W Letch requested that his vote against the decision be recorded;
