'A Developer/Agent had requested a confidential meeting with the Parish Council to discuss possible housing development in Southwick. The reply to the developer was thus:

It is contrary to the public interest to hold such a meeting and, if held, could attract unwelcome criticism of the Parish Council.
A Parish Council meeting must be open to the public and the public can only be excluded by a resolution if publicity would prejudice the public interest by reason of the confidential nature of the business. The Parish Council does not believe that discussion of a possible housing development in the Parish falls into this latter category – terms of tenders, preparation of cases in legal proceedings are examples where the public interest could be prejudiced and the need for confidentiality to be protected.
The Parish Council could also be prejudiced at such a meeting by offering a view when the public has not had an opportunity to comment and no planning application has been submitted.
In view of the above the Parish Council will not arrange a confidential meeting with you.'
