Minutes:

The minutes of the meeting held on 22 July 2013 were submitted and approved and the Chairman was authorised to sign them as a correct record.

15.

Declarations of Disclosable Pecuniary Interests (DPIs) by members as required under Section 31 of the Localism Act and of other interests under the Code of Conduct.

Minutes:

No DPIs were declared although Councillor Liddiard declared a potential personal interest as he knew one of the persons supplying evidence in support of the licensed driver. Councillor Liddiard considered his position, sought legal advice and did not consider himself to have a prejudicial interest in the matter. He therefore remained in the room and participated in the decision making process.

16.

Exclusion of the Public.

The Chief Executive considers that discussion of the following item is likely to disclose exempt information defined in Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 and may therefore need to take place in confidential session. The relevant paragraphs of Schedule 12A are shown beneath the item listed below.  Furthermore, in relation to paragraph 10 of Schedule 12A, it is considered that the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

Minutes:

RESOLVED: That the public be excluded from the remainder of the meeting as otherwise there was a likelihood of disclosure to them of exempt information as defined in Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972. The relevant paragraphs of Schedule 12A are shown below.

17.
