Dear North East Lincolnshire Council,

Background papers to request:


12th October, 2011 (Minutes)

"Councillor Jackson raised a point of order, that the Panel be able to consider Appendix 1 (exempt information) to the report in open session. Mrs. Conolly advised that pre budget OBCs were taken as exempt items."

Review of Outline Business Case CS08 – Waste Management (Collection & Disposal)

"The “Government Review of Waste Policy in England 2011” published earlier this year set out the Governments “strategy” on waste. In particular the Government are looking to repeal certain powers available to local authorities, which includes powers of entry that currently enable local authorities to inspect household waste. A full review of the OBC has therefore been undertaken, in discussion with the Portfolio Holder – Environment & Strategic Housing, to ensure that where possible it takes account of the proposed changes to legislation."

Please disclose details of Appendix 1 mentioned in the above two documents which was at the time exempt information. As this appears to have been exempt on the grounds that it was a pre budget OBC, I trust it will no longer be exempt on those grounds.

Yours faithfully,

Stan Higgleston
