If the decision has not been published in the List of Forthcoming Key Decisions for at least 28 clear days, the reason why it would be impracticable to delay the decision:: In accordance with rule 2.5 of the Executive and Decision Making Procedure Rules, this decision is to be treated under the general exception because it is impracticable to defer the decision until it has been included in the list of forthcoming key decisions for 28 clear calendar days. If this exception was not applied and the decision delayed for 28 calendar days this would significantly increase the voids backlog, exacerbating the housing shortage within the Authority.
