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 judgement 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.

Queries were made about minute numbers 66.1 and 66.4 which stated that the application be approved and the decision be delegated to the Director of

Planning and Property in consultation with the Chair and Vice Chair of the

agreement to secure affordable housing, delivery of employment land through

a management company, public art contribution, acoustic fencing, highway
