Processing formal applications
Council has a responsibility to decide an access application and give notice with the decision within 20 working days after Council receives the application. This may be extended a further 15 days if special circumstances apply, such as the need to consult with a third party or when records need to be retrieved from archives.

If your application concerns the personal or business affairs of a third party, Council is required to take reasonable steps to consult with the third party to obtain their views. Council must take into account any views offered by a third party when making its decision.

Processing application fees
Processing fees can apply for locating the information, decision making and consultation. A fee of $30 an hour covers processing information. If the application related to your personal affairs, you are entitled to 20 hours processing time with your original application fee.
