Exclusion of the Public and the Public Interest Test

To consider whether it is in the public interest to exclude the public during consideration of Agenda Item 5 – ‘Appeal A646’ which contains information ‘not for publication’ by virtue of the categories set out in the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).

 

Minutes:

RESOLVED – That the public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of Agenda Item 4 ‘Appeal A644’, to prevent the disclosure of information relating to an individual.  It would not, on balance, be in the public interest to disclose this information to the public because disclosure of the personal information would not be fair to the appellant and therefore in breach of Data Protection regulations.
