Access to Information

Notice of Intention to Conduct Business in Private

This report will contain some information which the Cabinet may decide to consider in private. This is because, in the view of the Proper Officer, consideration of the information in public would give rise to the disclosure of exempt information as described in paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 - information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information). Should you wish to make any representation for the discussion of this item to be held in public, you should contact: Democratic Services, Medway Council, Gun Wharf, Dock Road, Chatham, Kent, ME4 4TR or email democratic.services@medway.gov.uk

 

Whilst this item was included on the Forward Plan as an open report in compliance of the regulations, it is noted that the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements)(Meetings and Access to Information)(England) Regulations 2012 also requires 28 clear days’ notice of a Cabinet meeting to be held in private. On this occasion it has not been possible to provide this 28 clear days’ notice. The Chairman of the Business Support Overview and Scrutiny Committee has agreed, in accordance with the provisions of the 2012 Regulations, that this matter is both urgent and cannot be reasonably deferred until the next Cabinet meeting on 2 March 2021 because it is recommended that the Cabinet consider details of funding to date for the first five MDC projects and its cashflow, which will be detailed in the exempt appendices, at the earliest opportunity.

 

The Cabinet’s response to any representations and final notice of intention to conduct business in private will be published on 25 January 2021 within the Cabinet Agenda (Exclusion of Press and Public report). A final decision on whether this item will be determined in private will be taken during the meeting.
