Explanation of anticipated restriction:
The appendix is NOT FOR PUBLICATION in accordance with paragraph (s) 3 of Schedule 12A of Part 1 of the Local Government Act 1972 in that it contains information relating to financial information, namely financial information relating to Bushfield Court. The public interest test has been applied to the information contained within the exempt annex and it is considered that the need to retain the information as exempt outweighs the public interest in disclosing it as commercial negotiations regarding the purchase of this property are ongoing and therefore it is not appropriate for the financial details to be made public at this juncture
