Access to Council Information

Members of the public seeking access to Council information have a number of avenues that they can use. Council has endeavoured to place as much information as possible on our website for ease of access. In the first instance, the public should search Council’s website for information.

Most information can be inspected and obtained from Council’s Administration building between the hours of 8.30am and 5.00pm, Monday to Friday (except public holidays), at 6 Shire Street, West Wyalong, by phoning 02 6972 2266, or in writing. In many instances information may be provided or access given to review documents by simply making a request in person or writing.

If the information being requested is an open access document as classified under the GIPA Act or GIPA Regulation, but is not easily accessible, or if Council cannot obtain the information for you immediately, you will be asked to complete an Application for Access to Information form.(PDF, 306KB)

All open access information is available free of charge in at least one form. If this information is not on our website, Council will make a copy for you. If the information requested requires Council to consult with a third party, where the information will require a significant amount of Council resources to provide the information or if the request is for sensitive information, Council will request you to complete an Application for Access to Information form(PDF, 306KB), fees and charges will apply.

The fees and charges associated can be located in Council’s Revenue Policy. This can be located on Council’s website or for viewing at Council’s Administration Building or Library.

If you experience any difficulty in obtaining information, please contact Council’s Right to Information Officer.
