Freedom of information
The COVID-19 pandemic could limit the City’s ability to meet the timeframes prescribed under the Freedom of Information Act 1992, as well as limit the City’s capacity in regards to scope size and complexity, and number of applications it can process.
To help facilitate processing when making a FOI application, please be as specific as possible to narrow the scope to the specific information you require. In addition, it will help the City if you specify whether you are willing to grant additional time to process your application.
For further information please visit the Office of the Information Commissioner’s website or their publication regarding FOI and COVID-19.
The Freedom of Information Act 1992 gives the public a right to apply for access to documents held by the City of Subiaco.
It is the aim of the City of Subiaco to make information available whenever possible outside the FOI process. However, if you would like to lodge an application with the city, please refer to the current City of Subiaco information statement (PDF, 1.3MB).
Rights to access documents
If information is not routinely available, the Freedom of Information Act 1992 provides the right to apply for documents held by the agency and to enable the public to ensure that personal information in documents held by the city is accurate, complete and up-to- date.
An FOI application must:
- be in writing
- give enough detail so that the documents requested can be identified
- give an Australian address for notification
- be lodged with the city (and payment of any applicable fees made).
