Formal Access

Any government information held by Council that does not fall under Informal Release, Mandatory Disclosure or Proactive Release will require a formal access application.

A $30 application fee applies to all Formal Access applications.

Once the request is received by the Council, a decision will be made within 20 working days.

If you are refused access, you may request a review or appeal the decision. Reviews are conducted either internally, by a complaint to the Administrative Decisions Tribunal and/or the Information Commissioner.
