Exclusion of Press and Public / Gwahardd y Wasg a'r Cyhoedd

To agree the exclusion of the press and public from the meeting as the report is not for publication because in accordance with paragraph 14 of Schedule 12a of the Local Government Act 1972 (As Amended By The Access To Information Variation Wales Order 2007) it contains information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding that information) and the public interest in maintaining the exemptions outweighs the public interest in disclosing the information.

 

Cytuno gwahardd y wasg a’r cyhoedd o’r cyfarfod gan nad yw’r adroddiad i’w gyhoeddi oherwydd, yn unol â pharagraff 14 o Atodlen 12a Deddf Llywodraeth Leol (fel y’i diwygiwyd gan Orchymyn Amrywio Mynediad at Wybodaeth Cymru 2007),  ei fod yn cynnwys gwybodaeth yn ymwneud â materion ariannol neu fusnes person penodol (gan gynnwys yr awdurdod sydd â’r wybodaeth) ac mae budd y cyhoedd o ran cynnal yr eithriadau yn gwrthbwyso’r budd cyhoeddus o ddatgelu’r wybodaeth.
