Good morning,

I refer to your request received on 14 August 2020 for access to documents under the FOI Act.

The current due date for your request is 13 September 2020.

Due to the number of requests currently being processed by our office, we will not be able to finalise your request by the original due date.

In order for the Department to complete the process of retrieving all the documents that fall within the scope of your request the Department will require additional time to process your request.

The Department seeks your agreement under section 15AA of the FOI Act to extend the timeframe for the processing of your request by 30 days. This would extend the due date for your request to 13 October 2020.

It would assist the Department in managing its FOI caseload if you could provide a response to this request by close of business, Friday 4 September 2020.

Dear FOI Officer,

FOI Request: FA 20/08/00677
File Number: OBJ2020/26603

Thank you for your response. I just wanted to know if it would be possible to adjust this request. By the Perth Metropolitan Area, I meant data for all councils considered part of the Perth Metro region (total 30 as per my understanding).

I am seeking information similar to FOI request FA 20/02/01122 which is available on the departments disclosure log (https://www.homeaffairs.gov.au/access-an....

Kindly let me know if similar data could be release for the Perth region. I apologize if my wording was a bit unclear.

Thank you very much in advance.

Yours sincerely,

Sana Aima
