Public interest statement: The public interest in not disclosing the content of this report outweighs the public interest in disclosing it because any publicity about the negotiation of terms for the acquisition of land may affect the financial interests of the Council and, by extension, those of the residents of Chelmsford as well as the other parties involved in the acquisition and future development of the site. In particular, it would undermine the attainment of best value during the negotiations as other interested parties would be aware of the land owner’s financial positions and intentions in advance.
