Corporate Office Accommodation Strategy

To consider a report of the Director of Hampshire 2050 regarding the County Council’s office accommodation portfolio.

Decision type: Key

Reason Key: Expenditure or Savings > £2,000,000;

Decision status: For Determination

Notice of proposed decision first published: 12/02/2024

Anticipated restriction: Part exempt  -

Explanation of anticipated restriction:
This report is not for publication as it contains exempt information within Paragraph 3 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, being information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information). Further, it is considered that, in all the circumstances, the public interest in maintaining this exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing this information. While there may be a public interest in disclosing this information, namely it will identify the value of the County Council’s property, it is felt that, on balance, this is outweighed by other factors in favour of maintaining the exemption, namely the sale of the property is subject to confidential third party financial and other negotiations and to reveal details of those negotiations would adversely affect the County Council’s negotiating position in property-related matters.

Decision due: 14 Mar 2024 by Leader and Executive Member for Hampshire 2050 and Corporate Services

Lead director: Director of Hampshire 2050
