  • The personal hardship of any resident or ratepayer,
  • Information that would, if disclosed, confer a commercial advantage on a person with whom the council is conducting (or proposes to conduct) business,
  • Commercial information of a confidential nature that would, if disclosed:
    • Prejudice the commercial position of the person who supplied it, or
    • Confer a commercial advantage on a competitor of the council, or
    • Reveal a trade secret,
    • Information that would, if disclosed, prejudice the maintenance of law,
  • Matters affecting the security of the council, councillors, council staff or council property,
  • Advice concerning litigation, or advice that would otherwise be privileged from production in legal proceedings on the ground of legal professional privilege,
