Delivered

Dear Ms O'Neill,

Thank you for your letter of 1 June 2018 advising me that the scope of my request of 4 May 2018 was too broad to process.

I would like to revise the scope of my request. I now request any documents that mention the impact on the Striped Legless Lizard because of the building or creation of the ACT suburb of Lawson.

Yours faithfully,

Shane Townsend

Dear Mr Townsend

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION (FOI) REQUEST

I refer to your application received by the Environment, Planning and

We are currently experiencing a delay with the final submission and I am
seeking your agreement to a 15 day extension. The revised deadline will be
6 August 2018; however, we will endeavour to provide you with a response

Dear Mr Townsend

 

Information identified as relevant to your request involves a third party.
This relevant third party may be concerned about the release and
publication of the identified information. Under section 38 of the Act, I
am obliged to seek third party views on the release of the information
concerning them and, under section 40 of the Act, provide a period of
15 working days for them to submit reasons favouring non-disclosure.

The revised deadline for a response to your request is 14 September 2018.

 

Should the relevant third party disagree with the determination on the
release of government information in response to your request, access to
that information may be deferred to facilitate an external review process
and you will be notified accordingly.

 

 

Kind regards

Dear Mr Townsend

 

In the process of undertaking third party consultation information has
been provided to EPSDD regarding changes to external businesses. As a
result additional third parties must be consulted prior to making a
decision on release. This information was not available to EPSDD
previously.

 

In order to allow the new third party time to consider and respond to the
proposed release of documents under FOI, an additional 15 working days is
necessary to process the request. The new due date for the request is 2
October 2018, I apologise for the delay and appreciate your patience
during this process.

 

Regards
