    When will the Cabinet meet to decide the outcome?

      • from the meeting minutes:
        Councillors Akhtar and Doyle declared personal interests in Minute No. 30 (Business Case to consider the Selective Licensing of Private Rented Accommodation) on the grounds that they were owners of properties that were rented privately and left the room whilst this matter was discussed.
