What is personal information?

Personal information documents include information of any matter of personal or private concern to an individual (i.e. medical records, family or domestic relationships, income, assets, financial records).

Access to personal information

The RTI Act and IP Act allows  you the right to apply for documents that relate to you held by council. You  are allowed to examine and have copies of these documents. You also are able to apply to have the documents concerning you to be amended if you believe they are inaccurate, incomplete, out of date or misleading. You also have the right of appeal if council does not give you access to the documents you want to see.
