Open Access Information not Publicly Available
Under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 (GIPA), when deciding whether or not to release information, Council must consider whether there is an overriding public interest against releasing the information.
If Council makes decisions about open access information that will not be disclosed due to an overriding public interest, it will publish the information on its website.
For more information on how government agencies apply the public interest test when determining whether or not to release information, please visit the Office of the Information Commissioner Website.
Please note that Council publications are available in Portable Document Format (PDF) and require Abobe Acrobat to open. Adobe Acrobat Reader is available from the Adobe website www.adobe.com. Adobe Acrobat software has an embeded 'screen reader' which can read aloud the text in most PDF files and is available for free at www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readermain.html.
