Dear Murray River Council and Sandy,

Many other councils do not charge for access to this information in accordance with section 8 of the GIPA Act, my request is an informal request to access information. There should be no fee attached to it, why is your council treating it differently?

Yours sincerely,

Nigel Gladstone

From: .Murray River Council Trim

Under the GIPA legislation a Formal access application for release of information can be applied if you are requested a large volume of information or the information you seek involves personal or business information about third parties who must be consulted before the information can be released. Applications must be in writing, and accompanied by a $30 fee.

I hope this is of some help.

Kind regards,

Dear .Murray River Council Trim,

This request is very simple as all the information I am asking for is contained in an annual report all councils provide to the NSW food Authority. The food authority send an email form each year and it is emailed back to them. Lane Cove council had it in their document management system but if you do not you can request it from the food authority and they will email it back to you. It took about ten minutes to collate the information I am asking for according to other councils.

The Food authority will not release the forms as it is third party information so I have to request it from all councils individually. I have already received this information from several councils without the need for a GIPA or any paperwork as it is an informal request.

Yours sincerely,

Nigel Gladstone
