The Freedom of Information Act provides for a review and appeal process. You may seek an internal review or if you are still not satisfied a review by the Information Commissioner and still further you can appeal to the Supreme Court.
The internal review is handled by the City's Executive Manager Governance & Legal Services or delegated alternative officer who is independent of the FOI Coordinator.
To apply for an internal review you must make application in writing and lodge it with the City within 30 days of being notified of the original decision. There is no charge for an internal review. (A form is available to assist with the application for an internal review).
If you are not satisfied with the outcome of an internal review you may apply to the Information Commissioner for an External Review. This request must be made in writing to the Information Commissioner giving details of the decision to which your complaint relates.
Appeals on the to the Supreme Court can be made regarding any question of law arising out of a decision of the Information Commissioner, except for a decision as to the deferral of access to a document, the charges to be imposed for dealing with an access application and the payment of a deposit on account of charges.
