Dear Local Council,

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,

Nigel Gladstone

Ella Wroblewski, Lake Macquarie City Council

Dear Nigel

I refer to your email requesting access to information regarding food safety inspections for years 2014 - 2016.

This information can be found in the Activity Report that Council completes for the NSW Food Authority each year. The 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 reports are available on the NSW Food Authority website at Unfortunately, the 2015/2016 results have not yet been made available online by the Food Authority so I have attached a copy of the report for your perusal.

Information concerning the offences and fines is available for viewing on the Register of Penalty Notices on the NSW Food Authority website. The register is sorted by suburb and can be found here

Please contact me via reply email or on 49210644 if you require further information.
