Dear Jack, Official Information Request – F2844357, Pineapple Flagstaff Track
I refer to your official information request dated 2 October 2019 for F2844357, Pineapple Flagstaff
The Official Information Act 1982 (OIA) requires that we advise you of our decision on your
request no later than 20 working days after the day we received your request. Unfortunately, it
will not be possible to meet that time limit and we are therefore writing to notify you of an
extension of the time to make our decision, to another 20 working days to allow for completion of
fire investigation report that is still being done.
The reason for the extension is that:
Your request is for a copy of a fire investigation report. The report is currently being
prepared by the investigating Fire Risk Management Officer and has not yet been
completed or internally approved. Your request will be advanced once the report is
available. At this stage, it is anticipated that the report will be available for release within
another 20 working days.
You have the right to seek an investigation and review by the Ombudsman of this decision.
Information about how to make a complaint is available at www.ombudsman.parliament.nz
Freephone 0800 802 602.
