Public notices and notices of intention to discuss private business at committee meetings
We are aware that a number of residents have received a text messages that says it is from Lewisham Crime Enforcement, telling the person they have outstanding fines and to click on a link and pay immediately.
THIS IS A SCAM.
If you receive a text message, please ignore and report to www.actionfraud.police.uk.
In accordance with Regulation 5 of the Local Authorities (Executive Arrangements) (Meetings and Access to Information) (England) Regulations 2012, we give notices of private business when we believe that a committee is likely to consider an item in private.
The reason that some items are likely to be considered in private is that discussing them involves the disclosure of exempt information under the following category of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972:
(3) Information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the authority holding the information).
