Purpose / Summary

To seek a resolution from Council which authorises the sale of land.

In accordance with Section 10A(2)(d)(i) of the Local Government Act 1993, some information should remain confidential and should be considered as part of a separate confidential report to Council.  It is not in the public interest to disclose this information as it contains “commercial information of a confidential nature that would, if disclosed, prejudice the commercial position of the person who supplied it”.

 

Recommendation

That Council, in accordance with Section 10A(2)(d)(i) of the Local Government Act 1993 consider a separate confidential report on this matter.

 

 

 

Options

1.    Proceed in accordance with the recommendation.

Details are provided in the confidential report. The terms of an offer require the matter to remain confidential at this stage.

2.    Propose an alternative and provide further direction to staff.

 

Background

This report deals with a proposed sale of land and the proponent has requested that it be kept in the strictest confidence until such time as the matter is completed.

Nevertheless, should council support the sale of land it will be advertised in accordance with council policy as part of the community engagement.
