Background Information
The agenda for each Executive meeting will be published at least 5 working days before the meeting and will be available for inspection at the Council Offices and on the Council’s Website (www.waverley.gov.uk). This programme gives at least 28 days notice of items before they are considered at a meeting of the Executive and consultation will be undertaken with relevant interested parties and stakeholders where necessary.

Exempt Information - whilst the majority of the Executive’s business at the meetings listed in this Plan will be open to the public and press, there will inevitably be some business to be considered which contains confidential, commercially sensitive or personal information which will be discussed in exempt session, i.e. with the press and public excluded. These matters are most commonly human resource decisions relating to individuals such as requests for early or flexible retirements and property matters relating to individual transactions. These may relate to key and non-key decisions. If they are not key decisions, 28 days notice of the likely intention to consider the item in exempt needs to be given.

This is formal notice under the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012 that part of any of the Executive meetings listed below may be held in private because the agenda and reports or annexes for that meeting contain exempt information under Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended), and that the public interest in withholding the information outweighs the public interest in disclosing it. Where this applies, the letter [E] will appear after the name of the topic, along with an indication of which exempt paragraph(s) applies, most commonly:

[E1 – Information relating to any individual; E2 – Information which is likely to reveal the identity of an individual; E3 – Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information); E5 Information in respect of which a claim to legal professional privilege could be maintained in legal proceedings; E7 – Information relating to any action taken or to be taken in connection with the prevention, investigation or prosecution of crime].
