Private meetings

In exceptional circumstances, we have the legal right to exclude members of the public from all, or part, of an Executive decision-making meeting. To do this, we must give notice in advance of our intention to hold a private meeting. If members of the public disagree with the plan to hold a private meeting, they may give a response (called a 'representation') to say why they think the item should be discussed in public.
