Decision details

Appointment of Director of Children's Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No




The Committee RESOLVED that from this point onward the public will be excluded, and public webcast stopped for the duration of item 5 since it is likely that if they were present during those items there would be disclosure of exempt information as defined in Part I of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended) and specified below in relation to those items.


The information contained in the report is exempt in that it falls within the following prescribed categories:


1. Information relating to a particular individual.

2. Information which is likely to reveal the identity of an individual.

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


It is considered that in this case the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information, in that such disclosure would distort the proper process of free negotiations between the authority with another party for the purposes described and would prejudice the position of the authority in those negotiations and other negotiations of a similar nature in future.


Members conducted interviews.


RESOLVED: to recommend an appointment to the position of Director of Children’s Services.
