  • Reason for Presentation of Report on a Confidential Basis

    This report is submitted on a confidential basis as it involves information that would, if disclosed, confer a commercial advantage on a person with whom the council is conducting (or proposes to conduct) business. (Local Government Act 1993, section 10A(2)(c))

    On balance, the public interest in preserving the confidentiality of the commercial information supplied, outweighs the public interest in openness and transparency in council decision making by discussing the matter in open meeting.
