Apologies received from Councillor Pat Todd.


Substitute Members (Councillors)


Election of a Chairman for the meeting



Declaration of interests by Board members and officers

TO RECEIVE any declarations for the following in so far as they relate to the business for the meeting:-


a.         Disclosable Pecuniary Interests

b.         Other Significant Interests (what were previously thought of as non-pecuniary Prejudicial interests)

c.         Voluntary Announcements of Other Interests


Voluntary Announcements of Other Interests not required to be disclosed as DPI’s or OSI’s, ie announcements made for transparency reasons alone, such as:

           Membership of outside bodies that have made representations on agenda items, or

           Where a Councillor knows a person involved, but does not have a close association with that person, or

           Where an item would affect the well-being of a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc but not his/her financial position.


[Note: an effect on the financial position of a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc; OR an application made by a Councillor, relative, close associate, employer, etc, would both probably constitute either an OSI or in some cases a DPI].



Public Participation

Provided that notification has been given to Democratic Services by 12.30pm on the working day before the meeting, members of the public may speak on any item on the agenda for a maximum of three minutes.

Any other urgent business to be dealt with in public


Exclusion of the press and public

TO RESOLVE – That under Section 100(A)(4) of the Local Government Act 1972, the public and press be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the following items of business on the grounds that they involve the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Act or the Freedom of Information Act or both.



Property Action Plan Updates


The action plan updates the Board on ongoing tenant related matters, for example lease negotiations. The Property department act as landlord on behalf of the Board and so manage the tenants and leases directly. Where any decisions by the Board are required a separate item will be listed on the agenda accompanied by a formal report to inform the decision(s).


(The action plan contains information the disclosure of which is likely to prejudice the commercial interest of both the Council and other bodies (s. 43 Freedom of Information Act 2000). The Council considers that at present the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing it. Paragraph 3 of schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 also applies.)


Any other business which falls under the exempt provisions of the Local Government Act 1972 or the Freedom of Information Act 2000 or both
