What happens next?
We will work on your request, and payment of the Access Charges will be required once a decision is finalised. You will be advised of the decision in writing.
Where a decision is made to refuse or defer access, you will be notified in writing of the reasons. If you are not satisfied with the reasons you can seek a review from the Victorian Information Commissioner.
Your application may be refused if it is considered to be ‘voluminous in nature’, i.e. it would interfere unreasonably with the operations or performance of Council.
Council may have made the document you are requesting publicly available so before making a request for access, first view the list of documents in the FOI Part II Statement as it may be available through a search on our website.
More information can be found on the Victorian Information Commissioner’s website. Alternatively, call Council on 03 5366 7100 to speak to the Freedom of Information Officer.
