Anticipated reasons for restriction

Revenues and IT Support Service – Future Service Delivery Options

By virtue of paragraph(s) 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972.

Explanation of Reasons

  • By Virtue of Paragraph 3

    Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information)

    Condition:

    Information is not exempt if it is required to be registered under-

    • The Companies Act 1985
    • The Friendly Societies Act 1974
    • The Friendly Societies Act 1992
    • The Industrial and Provident Societies Acts 1965 to 1978
    • The Building Societies Act 1986 (recorded in the public file of any building society, within the meaning of the Act)
    • The Charities Act 1993

    Information is exempt to the extent that, in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

    Information is not exempt if it relates to proposed development for which the local planning authority may grant itself planning permission pursuant to Regulation 3 of the Town & Country Planning General Regulations 1992(a).

Reason restricted justification

Appendices A and D of this report are not for publication as they contain the following category of exempt information as specified in Paragraph 3, Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972, namely: “Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information)"

The appendices contain commercially sensitive information that would, or would be likely to, prejudice the Council’s commercial interests. The public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information because if this information is disclosed at this time it could be used by a potential bidder to adversely affect pricing for a potential procurement.
