Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information Act 1991 (SA) gives members of the public the right to access documents (subject to certain exemptions) within Council’s possession.
Many Council documents - including those found on this website - are publicly available and do not require a Freedom of Information (FOI) application. As much as possible, we make information readily available to the community.
However, if you request other information, we will consider this in line with the requirements of the Act.
FOI forms are available at the Council office and applicants will receive a response within 30 days of Council receiving the completed FOI request form, together with the application and search fees. These can be addressed to:Clare Elsworthy Freedom of Information Officer Wakefield Regional Council PO Box 167 BALAKLAVA SA 5461
Costs may apply to accessing documents pursuant to the Act.
If you have any further queries, please contact our Freedom of Information Officer on 8862 0800 or via email.
Amendment of Council Records
A member of the public may gain access to Council documents to make amendments concerning their personal aff airs by making a request to us, then seeking a correction to any information about themselves that is incomplete, incorrect, misleading or out of date.
To gain access to these Council records, a member of the public can request a copy or complete a Freedom of Information request form, outlining the records he/she wishes to inspect.
