Once a valid request is received, Council will conduct a thorough and diligent search for the documents, assess them for any applicable exemptions, and conduct mandatory consultations and notifications of affected third parties.

  • your application is not valid

  • Council is required to consult with third parties.

How to apply

Your request must be:

  • in writing
