Exclusion of the Press and Public


RECOMMENDED that the press and public be excluded as:


a)    It is likely, in view of the nature of the business to be transacted, or the nature of the proceedings, that if a member of the public were present during the item there would be disclosure to them of exempt information as specified in Part 1 of Schedule 12A (as amended) to the Local Government Act 1972; and


b)    In all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.


Code of Conduct Complaints pdf icon PDF 115 KB

The Committee will consider a report on Councillor Code of Conduct complaints received or ongoing since 1 January 2021.
