Declaration of Interest

Members are requested to indicate at this stage in the proceedings any items on the agenda in which they intend to declare an interest. Members are reminded that if the interest is a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest (as defined in the Members’ Code of Conduct) they must leave the room for the whole of that item. If the interest is not a Disclosable Pecuniary Interest, but is such that a member of the public could reasonably regard it as being so significant that it is likely that it would prejudice their judgment of the public interest (as explained in the Code of Conduct) then they may make representations, but then must leave the meeting for the remainder of the item.

Minutes:

Councillor Barrie Yates stated that someone had alleged that he had spoken to the applicant concerning planning application 07/2017/3097/FUL. Councillor Barrie Yates indicated that in fact he had not spoken to the applicant but following advice from the Monitoring Officer he left the meeting during the consideration and voting thereon.

 

Councillor Mike Nathan declared a prejudicial interest in planning application 07/2017/2644/FUL as he lived close to the application site and therefore left the meeting during the consideration and voting thereon.
