Dear Mr Monceaux

Freedom of Information Request no. 200403

 

The Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment (the Department)
acknowledges receipt of your request under the Freedom of Information Act
1982 (FOI Act) which seeks:

 

I am writing to request electronic copies of any correspondence between
T-Ports and this department regarding their intention to develop grain
handling, storage and loading facilities at Lucky Bay in South Australia
and/or their intention to transship grain from Lucky Bay in South
Australia to ocean-going vessels at transshipment points within the
Franklin Harbor Marine Park.

 

The Department is required to process valid requests within 30 days after
the day a request was received. This 30 day processing period may be
extended under certain circumstances, for example, where the Department
decides it reasonable to consult with third parties. If the processing
period is extended, you will be informed of the extension and the reasons
for it.

 

The statutory deadline for providing a decision on this request is
currently 4 May 2020.

 

The Department makes two assumptions that affect the scope of the request.
These are set out below.

 

It is the usual practice of the Department:

·       not to disclose the personal information of junior officers or the
personal contact details of senior officers of the State or Federal
governments (including those of the Department). The names of senior
officers will generally be released. Your request will be processed on the
assumption that you do not intend to capture these details within its
scope.

·       not to release duplicates of any document captured within the
scope of the request. Further, where two documents fall within the scope
one differs from the other only with respect to minor editorial changes
(such as spelling or grammar corrections), only the later version of the
document will be treated as within scope.  Your request will be processed
on the assumption that you do not intend to capture duplicates or
documents that the Department considers duplicates (as per the above
explanation) within the scope of your request.

 

Please inform us if you do not agree to the request being processed by the
Department on the above assumptions.

 

Please note that information released under the FOI Act may later be
published online on our disclosure log.

 

We will contact you using the email you provided. Please advise if you
would prefer us to use an alternative means of contact.

 

If you have any questions, please contact the FOI Contact Officer on (02)
6274 2098.

 

Regards
