The Board recognises that in certain circumstances it may be impractical or impossible to consider all appropriate matters at open Board meetings for a number of reasons.  Examples of such matters may include:

  • Issues of an urgent and pressing nature where no formal meeting can be arranged within the timeframe required.
  • Issues of a minor nature which, in the interests of customer service and/or administrative expediency, should not be delayed pending discussion at a formal meeting.

The Board has established procedures for dealing with such matters and will review these procedures to ensure that they are adequate and appropriate.  Where it is necessary to determine issues out of session, the Board will ensure that the public is appropriately informed of decisions reached.
