The Right To Information Act 2009 is complemented by the Information Privacy Act 2009 which guides individuals on how to access their information and provides an opportunity to amend personal information held by Council. You can apply to access information held by Council or to have your personal information amended if you believe it is inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date or misleading.
The key goals of the Right to Information Act 2009 are to:
make more information available.
provide equal access to information for all members of the community.
protect the privacy of individuals.
The aim of these initiatives is to promote increased openness, transparency and accountability for the Balonne Shire Council.
