There are some situations where committee discussions might take place in a closed meeting. This means that by law, the public cannot attend.
Why we close a meeting to the public
A closed meeting will happen when the item for discussion:
- discloses information about an individual's personal, financial or business affairs
- discloses information about an individual's negotiations for land, goods, services or labour relations
- relates to legal proceedings
- is rendered confidential under any Act or Court Order
- is forbidden from publication.
If this happens, we will tell you the reason why and the Council will produce a summary of the decision at the closed meeting.
