Right to Information

New Queensland legislation has been introduced to encourage greater access to information about Council.

This legislation incorporates the following Acts:

  • Right to Information Act 2009
  • Information Privacy Act 2009

This legislation replaces the Freedom of Information Act 1992, and is effective from 1 July 2009.

The Right to Infomation Act 2009 provides access to government information unless, on balance, it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information. This Act is complemented by the Information Privacy Act 2009 which establishes a right to access and to amend personal information.

More information about the Right to Information or Information Privacy can be found on the Queensland Government's website.
