Report to be circulated separately.

Additional documents:


Report circulated, seeking agreement to submit a bid to central Government to be part of a Hampshire-wide business rate pilot for the financial year 2019-20.


The report gave a breakdown of the potentially significant financial benefit to the Council in 2019-20 should the bid be successful, weighed against the risks, which Cabinet noted would be spread proportionally across the pool of authorities.  The report also set out the proposed governance model for the assessment of bids for infrastructure funding, to be linked with any emerging housing deal framework.


On the advice of the Monitoring Officer, Cabinet agreed, on the basis that any bid would need to be submitted by no later than 25 September 2018, to treat this matter as an urgent decision in accordance with standing order 86.1 and therefore not subject to call-in.


RESOLVED that approval be given for Havant Borough Council to be part of a Hampshire-wide business rate pilot submission.



Exclusion of the Press and Public

RECOMMENDED that the public be excluded from the meeting during consideration of the item headed and numbered as below because:


(a)        it is likely, in view of the nature of the business to be transacted or the nature of the proceedings, that if members of the public were present during that item there would be disclosure to them of exempt information of the descriptions specified in paragraphs of Part 1 of Schedule 12A (as amended) of the Local Government Act 1972 shown against the heading in question; and


(b)        in all the circumstances of the case, the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.
