Dear Wyong Shire Council,
I recently had the rangers ring me about someone complaining about my trailer parked on the side of the entrance rd bateau bay near the bowling alleys. As it is a registered trailer not doing any harm I would like to know the name of the party complaining? The ranger involved & your office both said that I have the right to know with this right to know application. So I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,
Cain webber

On this page (https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/i... the applicant asks :
Am i going to hear from you?
What is the timeframe on replies?
Some sort of acknowledgment would be nice?

I think that the last sentence is not a question. The Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 of the Australian state of New South Wales says in section 51(2) that "An agency’s decision as to the validity of an application must be made and notified to the applicant as soon as practicable after the agency receives the application and in any event within 5 working days after the application is received". That is a lot of words to say that the council should have written to you before 20 April to tell you whether your request was a valid request under the GIPA Act. I can tell you that it was not valid. It was not valid because the request is only valid if it is accompanied by a fee of $30.

If you want to make the request again, please do it from this page. It is best if you telephone the council and ask a person how you can pay the fee. Maybe it is with a credit card. Then you can say the receipt number (not your credit card information!!) for the payment in your Right to Know email.

Warning ... I know that the ranger said you have a right to know who made a complaint. It is not so simple. You have a right to ask who made the complaint but the council has a right to refuse to give you the information under some reasons. One valid reason not to give you the information is (1) if the complaining person gave her name in confidence, (2) also if the council have a good reason to believe that telling people the names of complainants would mean that a person was less likely to make a complaint (maybe a justified complaint) in the future. I think that you do not have a good case and that you would lose your $30 application fee because your request will be refused. But this is only my opinion.

Dear Wyong Shire Council,

If the above is your stance i would like to know the reason for the complaint?
I had a regestered trailer parked on the side of the road legally what was the reason for the complaint?
I would also like to know which law is saying i cant park my trailor on the side of the road?
Along with places i am allowed to park my legal, regestered trailor?
As well what are the consequences for parking my trailor on the side of the road?

Yours faithfully,

Dear Wyong Shire Council,
I would also appreciate knowing how my trailor affected the complainant?
Also is the complainant a local/living in a close proximity to where my trailor was?

I have said that this request is partially successful because it is a duplicate of https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/i... . It is better for a person to read that web page instead of this one.
