Freedom of information

If a request is refused

A request for information can only be refused if it falls under one of the exemptions of the FOI Act.

If your request is refused we will send you a refusal notice advising you of the exemption that applies and how the public interest test has been determined if a qualified exemption has been cited for refusal.

Notification will also be sent advising you of the Council's Internal Review process should you wish to appeal against our original decision.
