TO CONSIDER AN APPEAL BY APPLICANT A.H.R. AGAINST A DECISION BY OFFICERS FOR THE NON-PROVISION OF FREE SCHOOL TRANSPORT.

Minutes:

Following the application of the public interest test it was UNANIMOUSLY RESOLVED pursuant to the Act referred to in minute 3 above, not to publicise the content of the report as it contained exempt information relating to a particular individual. The public interest test in this matter related to the fact that the report included personal information relating to the applicant. Disclosure would support transparency and accountability in the decision making process, however, on balance the public interest in maintaining confidentiality outweighed the public interest in disclosure because of the need to protect the identity of the applicant and the family.

 

Following a request from the appellant it was:

 

UNANIMOUSLY resolved to defer the consideration of this appeal to the next scheduled Member Home to School Transport Appeal Panel meeting.
