Dear Bega Valley Shire Council,

You have not responded to my request for information yet. it has been more than a month. Can I please clarify that I want to know how many high and medium risk food businesses were inspected in each year and what percentage of these were inspected in each year.

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.
Lane Cove council had this in their document management system but if you do not have a copy of it, you can request it from the food authority and they will email it back to you. I am happy to go through the form myself to get the information as several other councils have sent it to me.

Unfortunately, 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 more than 40 councils now without the need for a GIPA or any paper work as it is an informal request.

I would also like to know how many formal improvement notices were issued in each year.

Yours faithfully,

Nigel Gladstone

Good afternoon Nigel

Please find attached Council's initial letter of reply to your request.

Unfortunately your original request did not meet the requirements under the GIPA for a valid application. So that we can still process your request I have attached a copy of our application form.

If you could please fill in the details and send back to me via email, I will process your request.

Please note we will waive the 30 dollar fee on this occasion.

Regards

Mark Irvin
Governance Coordinator

Bega Valley Shire Council
wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Safe New Year!
Closed 24 December - 2 Janaury 2017
