Exclusion of the Public

To consider passing a resolution in the following terms:


That, under section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act 1972, the public be excluded during the item in Part II of the Agenda for this meeting, because it is likely, in view of the nature of the business to be transacted, that if members of the public were present during this item there would be disclosure to them of exempt information as the report contains information relating to the financial or business affairs of the companies bidding for the contract.


(Local Government Act 1972, Schedule 12A, Part 1, Paragraphs 3).



Call-in and Urgency Procedure

CA/006/18 - Construction of the Multi-Storey Car Park (MSCP) Berkhamsted – Award of Contract


Call-in can be disapplied where the decision is urgent; the decision will be urgent if any delay likely to be caused by the call-in process would seriously prejudice the Council’s or the public’s interests. The decision is an urgent one and therefore

should not be subject to call-in in order to enable the Council to award the contract and secure the contract price and the contractor for the works. In the absence of the Mayor (on leave), the deputy Mayor has agreed both that the decision proposed is reasonable in all the circumstances and that it is to be treated as a matter of urgency.
