Anticipated reasons for restriction

*Disposal of Land at Test Lane

by virtue of paragraph number 3 of the Council's Access to information Procedure Rules

Explanation of Reasons

Reason restricted justification

Confidential Appendix 2 contains information deemed to be exempt from general publication based on Category 3 of paragraph 10.4 of the Council’s Access to Information Procedure Rules. The appendix includes details of a proposed transaction which, if disclosed prior to entering into a Legal contract, could put the Council at a commercial disadvantage. In applying the public interest test it is not considered appropriate to make public the bids received as this could lead to a revision of bids and, in the event of the transaction failing to complete, prejudice re-tendering of the property, therefore reducing the amount receivable by the Council.
