Council Secret Session

 At Full Council 13 December the press and public will be excluded as an “LCC contract for Public Realm Work” is considered to need secrecy from the public!

“It is recommended that members of the press and public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the following item(s) of business in accordance with Section 100A(4) of the Local Government Act 1972 on the grounds that it involves the likely disclosure of exempt information as defined in Paragraph 3 (financial/business affairs) of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Act and as, in all the circumstances of the case the public interest in maintaining the exemption under Schedule 12A outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information”.

Part 2 – Private and Confidential (Not open to the Public)

15. LCC Public Realm Work 2018-2021
  To consider the report of the Director of Street Scene.

16. Westec Development Update
  To consider the report of the Director of Housing and Inclusion.

Commercial in confidence, no doubt, as in the secrecy surrounding the landfill contracts at the Beacon Park Golf Course and the “royalties” paid to Serco Leisure that outweighed  the public interest?


  1. ‘Transparency’ West Lancs style!
