Can you please provide me with the number of food safety inspections carried out in your area annually, for the last three years?

How many warning were issued each year and how many fines each year?

What percentage of all food outlets did the council inspect each year?

Have any outlets been shut down for non-compliance and if so what for and how many?

What were the worst offences/biggest fines for each year?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Central Darling 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

Dear Pam,

Thanks for getting back to me.

Unfortunately the information i aksed for is not contained in the single annual report that is on the website you directed me to.

There is no 2014/15 annual report on the website and the 2015/16 report has a broken link so is not available I tried the link here - http://www.centraldarling.nsw.gov.au/269...

And it says there is a server error on the coucil website - 404 - File or directory not found.
The resource you are looking for might have been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

The 2013/14 report only listed the number of inspections carried out and has no information about warnings, formal improvement notices, or fines.

Can you please help me with this information in another way?

Yours sincerely,

Nigel Gladstone

I hope it can be sorted out soon. Please let me know when it is.
